Growing Pang

This piece deals with a coming of age. It describes the insecurities and ambitions which relate to this phase. The piece is inspired by a discomfort and fear of self-reliance manifesting itself in a desire to crawl back into one’s embryo which he has outgrown. This exists simultaneously with a deep desire for independence signified by "cutting the cord".
