"I realize that life is risks. It's acknowledging the past but looking forward. It's taking chances that we will make mistakes but believeing we all deserve to be forgiven."

Naturally selected
Hand picked
Collecting nothing but the finest
Sharp, witty, crazy
Intelligently sculpted minds
Picture perfect candidates
They bathe in glory
Constantly confused to which color
What size, how many, or which ones
No time to fret over the unessentials
Undiscovered, hidden, and longing.
Self-centered and pitiful
Confident and indestructible
Only the robotic-like could survive--
This was absolutely necessary.
Overlooked and perfected
Three million times,
Frantic silence...absolute mayhem on one,
Complete devastation on the other-
Normalcy.
Final time and destination
Abandoned stragglers stumbling to keep up
While gloriously perfected mannequins relax
Replenish and rediscover their beauty.
Their perfectedness. Their fame and glory.
Moronically so-Life.

This is good, but a little confusing, and your flow isn't as good as your other poem "Things I'll Never Tell You". It's still good, just not as good. Ok, and I hate to say this because I love when someone has a good use of vocabulary (which you do), but maybe tone it down on the "big words". I hate to say that... really do. But there's just too many of them, and it hinders your flow. Still good though, just not as good.
