Created or evolved whatever you please
walk in my shoes, which I can't seize

A computer originated world, I won't fathom
my death by some considered gruesome

I know how to live do not give me tips
but don't mourn me now, for I am in bits

suffocate me quick don't tarnish my produce
remember our sacrifice, our past abuse.

hints to make it easier:

My name is changed once deceased
yet it holds the same meaning
well done! I am rare once the fires have ceased
I humble your buds once you begin feeding

Seems to be:

Cow

Created or evolved whatever you please

It is a creature of some sort. Definitely a physical thing. Refers to the religious arguments about "physical" existence.

walk in my shoes, which I can't seize

Cow have no say about where they go.

A computer originated world,

Computer Originated World (dear God.)

I won't fathom my death by some considered gruesome

The death of a cow even in a humane abbatoir can be quite brutal.

I know how to live do not give me tips

"Leave me alone, don't tip me over!" (a past-time of certain people includes pushing cows over).

but don't mourn me now, for I am in bits

Cows are sold in small pieces.

suffocate me quick don't tarnish my produce

You must kill the cow quickly or the adrenaline can affect the meat. May also be some kind of reference to meat.

remember our sacrifice, our past abuse.

Cows have been sacrificed since time immemorial.

My name is changed once deceased

Cow becomes beef once killed.

yet it holds the same meaning

It is the exact same thing.

well done! I am rare once the fires have ceased

Beef can be "well done". But it "rare" if you take off the heat.

I humble your buds once you begin feeding

Delicious

  • $\begingroup$ Brilliant another sandwich for you, the Computer Originated World is wikis disambiguation of COW and there not digitalised. Created or evolved due to fit religous beliefs. I also believe a past time for teenages is Cow tipping thus dont give them tips :D. Well done $\endgroup$ – Oblongamous Nov 18 '14 at 11:30

"A computer originated world"

Are you a process running on a computer?

"Walk in my shoes, which I can't seize"

A computer process has a memory footprint (how much RAM is used), so you have figurative feet. Not real shoes so they can't be seized.

"my death by some considered gruesome"

If you kill a process on Linux using "kill -9", the OS kills it immediately without giving the process a chance to clean up gracefully. That could be considered gruesome.

"I know how to live do not give me tips"

A process's life is a pre-defined series of computer instructions that cannot be changed.

"but don't mourn me now, for I am in bits"

The memory that the process used is free again, representing bits that can be used for another process.

My guess:

Dinosaurs

Created or evolved whatever you please walk in my shoes, which I can't seize

T-rex?

A computer originated world, I won't fathom my death by some considered gruesome

Dinosaur, again. Killed off in mass extinction.

I know how to live do not give me tips but don't mourn me now, for I am in bits

Mass extinction, again.

Suffocate me quick don't tarnish my produce remember our sacrifice, our past abuse.

The carbon remains, over time, could be anything from natural gas to diamonds
