Make believe we'll die tomorrow
Die alone and far away
Make believe this doesn't matter
So we'll have no fear today

Make believe the dream is broken
Tell ourselves we've lost it all
Make believe we have no future
And today we cannot fall

Make believe we fail tomorrow
Fail and fall and fade away
Make believe this doesn't matter
So we'll have no fear today

Make believe it's then or never
Say we'll give it one last try
Make believe that hope is empty
And today we cannot die
Author's Notes:
Deliberately ironic, sort of.  More a personal, sardonic musing.
Report Offensive Poem.

You have a good ear for rhythmic forms.I'm not sure what is going on in the poem, presuming that expect the worst and if things turn out to be actually better..Result!

A pessimists view of life presumably.

wonderfully rythmic and with a deep pathos too.
