Metaphors By isabel casey and olivia donohoe

A metaphor is comparing a word of phrase to something without admitting to it.

'it's raining cats and dogs' This is not actually happening, but everyone knows what it means.

Katy Perry - Firework

This song tells us that no matter how different you are you can still be special and to never be afraid to show who you truly are.

TLC - Waterfalls

This song tells us to in a way be careful what we wish for and to be careful what dreams we go after because if we go after something that appears to be beautiful and harmless, it could hurt us.

Sia ft. David Guetta - Titanium

This song features a young boy who is being targeted because he is different. But he says that no matter how hard they try, they can never defeat him because he is titanium.

Miley Cyrus - The Climb

This song's message is that life is not about the destination, but the journey. It is saying that even though the journey might me hard sometimes, we need to stay faithful and never give up, even if there may be things in our way.

Don't Forget Where You Belong - One Direction

This song is saying that no matter how far you might go and how successful or busy you might get, you should always remember when you came from, because without the place you came from, you would not be where you are.

Just Like Fire - P!nk

Although this song includes a simile, there is also a fairly obvious metaphor as well. It is basically saying that you are like a fire, and because every fire is unique, burns differently, lasts for different periods of time, no one else can be just like you. If you could light the world up for just one day, then you have made your mark and will never be forgotten.

"The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life." (Proverbs 13:14)

A fountain gives us nourishment, and so the metaphor for 'teaching of the wise' is saying that teachings given to us by those who are wiser than us gives us nourishment in a form closer to the heart.

But now, O Lord, You are our Father, We are the clay, and You our potter; And all of us are the work of Your hand. (Isaiah 64:8)

This passage is saying that we would not be who we are today without God, and that we rely on God to mold us.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. (Psalms 23:1)

This passage simply means that God is the one who leads us in the right direction, but we are ultimately in charge of our own future, so that is all we will ask of him.

God is light, God is hope. God guides us when we need help. Everyone can be one with god if they try. God the almighty God.
