427. I am an orphan

  Adam and Eve
Had no human parents;
   Yet
They were not orphans,
For God the divine Father became their Father
   And
God the divine Mother became their Mother.

   I
Have two visible and tangible parents;
   Yet
I am an orphan,
For my father
Does not know how to feed me with wisdom-light,
   And
My mother
Does not know how to feed me with concern-might.
