Answer My Cry (Poem)

Les Henson


Isolation, vulnerability and loneliness

occupy the digital world we inhabit.

We recognise that digital friends

are never enough.

We befriend hundreds

but have few authentic friends.

We seek to belong,

yet we abide on the net.


The digital sphere creates a longing

satisfied only by human touch.

The need for intimacy

is forever present.

We all need a hug

amid the turmoils of life.

The need to truly belong

is ever so strong.

The cry of vulnerability

must be answered.

Please, oh please,

answer my cry.
