Write a metaphor poem. Use at least 3 metaphors comparing something important to you and how you feel about it.

My example:

My Family

My family is a warm quilt

Keeping me warm all year

My family is a song

That comforts me when I need it

My family is my heart

They keep me alive

In the comments below, type the lyrics and describe the metaphor you found. Be sure to cite the artist.

You may respond more than once. One per reply so we can easily read through them.

My example:

‘Cause baby you’re a firework
Come on show ’em what your worth
Make ’em go “oh, oh, oh!”
As you shoot across the sky-y-y

by Katy Perry

The metaphor – The woman is a firework who can ignite and wow the people around her. She may feel like she is a “nothing,” or someone that nobody notices, but she’s got the ability to light the spark within her and show them how amazing she is.
