“Personal growth is a cycle.
It starts with a trigger
Then follows perception,
Continues throughout change
And ends with what first seems perfection.

Personal growth is an unconscious thing.
Enhanced by passion
And with devotion,
Often hidden behind thoughts,
Yet ultimately visible through the new or remade notion.

Personal growth seems a positive thing.
It creates inner conflict
And builds upon reflection,
Nurtures sensitivity,
Wit, self-love and affection.

Yet, he who is wise
Should seek relentless continuation,
So that there is no end,
No waking revelation
That again he has failed the invincible race,
An infinite loop
I set up in my evergreen maze.”,

remarked the Red Queen.
