I am in a class right now and need to write an essay using five different metaphors to describe an aspect of my life, something I do, someplace I've been, or anything else and describe it using five different metaphors. I do not know where to begin or really understand what metaphors are, can you please help me? My paper is due tonight before midnight, EST.
