Majors and minors

I’ve got to let go
A minor fifth
A cadence, never a rest
The poor timing I’m living with

If life were octaves
I’d always be at the bottom end
Never sharp, always flat
The imperfect end

A shadow of a shadow
The echoes and the delay
I’m nothing, this I know
Just a rate of decay

The instruments are there
But it’s a matter of discord
The beating heart is irregular
An incorrect misplaced chord

The rest of the world
A happy normal C major scale
I’m the A minor
Simply doomed to fail
