What matters to you, may not matter to me

What matters to you, may not matter to me

A child in the system, talks of his plight,
Expressing his thoughts to another,
What matters to you, may not matter to me,
What I need is a dad and mother.

Some think I need a father of colour,
I say there are few to be had.
Some say I need a father with language,
I say I just need a dad.

Some say my father needs culture,
I say waiting will not make me glad.
Some say he must share my history,
I care not, I just want a dad.

I just want a father with arms who can hold me.
I just want a dad with a heart.
I just want a dad who will love me,
From whose home I need never depart.

What matters to you, may not matter to me
When it comes to finding a dad.
I just want a father who’ll stay by my side
And be the best friend a child ever had.

So, when a child in the system, talks of his plight
Expressing his thoughts to another,
Remember his words, that his needs aren’t complex,
He just wants a dad and a mother.
