Present Perfect

I’ve never been too confident

But I’ve got it right

Too many times

To say I’ve failed

I’ve fallen and I’ve ran

so many nights

So many places

I’ve been derailed

I’ve been sidetracked

Drawn off course

Like a dog

Without a lead

I’ve made my bed

Slept on floors

Like a pot

Without a seed

I’ve reached a place

I’ve found peace

Unlike many men

(I won’t say who)

I’ve come to see

The path to now

Means the past

Is perfect too
