How should I describe the whirlwind
Of emotions we face?

Like an anchor…
Cast into an abysmal sea
Where we must swim to the surface
In order to see clearly

A maze…
Standing in the center
Pondering over its many intricate paths
But holding only one exit

The tornado…
That suddenly roars through
Disarraying everything in its wake
Then leaves us to pick up the pieces

Perhaps a car crash…
In a matter of a second
They can strike us hard
When we least expect it

That persistent fly…
Which continues to land
Annoying you repeatedly
And refuses to leave

A foreign language…
A subject studied rigorously
To increase ones understanding
In an effort to master it

So…
Which metaphor(s) best applies to your life?
