Who Am I? What Am I?

Let’s start with a set of questions: “Who Am I? What Am I?”

Mineral, animal, vegetable. A human can be any of these. As a vegetable, you could be wasting your time watching television or possibly sitting down somewhere reading a smutty magazine fantasizing over something you could never have. As an animal, you act upon emotion and instinct, going boldly forth into the world, acting upon whatever you come across. But as a mineral, you act as a necessary building block for the world around you. Your absence would bring chaos and a weakening of the structure. You are essential. I’d like to be a mineral.

Literally, we’re seen to be an animal. But the literate is in the eye of the beholder. Many would say that the literal is defined only by what is socially acceptable. The kind of knowledge you’d find in an a encyclopedia or a dictionary. But I beg to differ. This viewpoint is what would make one close-minded. A tool of the environment surrounding them.

Rather than be a tool, I think I’d prefer to be the wielder of the tool. I’d prefer to mould the world that’s around me for its own bettering—of course, this may prove to be yet another egotistical foray into the world, but who am I to judge my own actions? I am a mineral. In “literal” terms, the mineral is not conscious of its actions but only acts to perform its function as a building block of its environment.

But this isn’t literal. This is me. My thoughts. My ideas. And my mind.

This mineral’s out to change the world. Watch your step.
