Metaphor of emotions

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


Which metaphor(s)   best applies to your life?
