On the occasion of World Poetry Day lets celebrate the power of poetry with a budding poet Mrinalini Pandey!
I once found a harrowing darkness surmounting me,
I felt trapped and hoped that someone would hear my plea,
I felt caged in a dark and dangerous dungeon,
In absolute fear and desolation my heart was sunken,
It was hard to escape and there wasn’t any ray of hope,
It was a place from where breaking free wasn’t a scope,
But as I got back on my feet and reckoned to flee,
I realised that every lock is incomplete without its key.
