Adaptability is about the powerful difference between adapting to cope and adapting to win.

I din't know what I was born as, but as it turns out and as this case perceives an outer body, I'd like to say that I was born an alien but don't know how I landed in a human case. Yes, as long as I know this isn't my body. The way in which this case moved around was almost equivalent to how I walked. It talked as I did. My inherent abilities like making and demolishing universes, consuming and giving energy got supressed and I realised what it is like to be a human and what it was like when I moulded other creatures of the varied universes, I learnt their lives and started to forget mine. It once so happened that a creature called power came to me, it pleaded me to give it its mere existence.
I did not know what it actually was, or what it actually was capable of doing.With some instinct and introspect, I nodded in a yes. It said and I quote " for you its your character, for them it will be something that they'll imbibe". I found profundity in what it said. It added and looked straight in my eye. The moment its eyes met mine, I frowned but my frown was so feeble. It was as if I had no other option but to agree and submit. Wait? submission, agreeing, giving in...I'd never heard of these terms. There was a magic in those words and they were intoxicating.
What intrigues me even more is this case in which I got stuck. How did this happen and moreover what was this case all about? People are like, so different to this case, they talk to him yet ignore him. They abuse him, yet when he is not sane, they console him. He is always bereft of inner peace, no matter what peaceful lessons he is taught. It seems to be thirsty for power and prowess. I do sense its being nurtured but despite getting enough nourishment he lacks behind. He seems to have inherited all the virtues that people/cases of its planet boast of. Its brutally honest, not for once can he lie and it can't hurt anyone.
Today, I found out that this case had taught me to lie but unlike other liars he wasnt very good at it, he was gaining wit but I guess that I came out of me, someowhere down the line I wanted it to rebel and lie and become diplomatic, it was on the verge of something, good or bad, dont know? I feel as if I am becoming one with him and I ceratinly and earnestly want to keep myself away from that. It has started to make me question my own identity though.
I guess I am one with it now.Wait! Hey! it seems I was asleep and I was probably dreaming. With bright sunshine splashed on my face, I am all set to start my day. I know I am going to have to face millions of ups and downs but its all that I am born to face and do away with. I know I have the "power" and the "prowess" and I am one with my soul, a soul that stretched beyond the lass of this universe. I am a human trapped in an alien case.
