I am a……

I’ve just completed a creative writing course and one of the exercises was to write about yourself using metaphors which are “figures of speech in which a word or phrase that ordinarily designates one thing is used to designate another, thus making an implicit comparison, as in “a sea of troubles” or “All the world’s a stage” (Shakespeare).”  And here are a few lines I wrote that I think represents me.

I am a caged dolphin performing predictable tricks with a wide green ocean calling me.

I have a crowd living in my head all talking in unison.

I am a butcher, a baker and a candlestick maker working as one.

I am a Rubik cube that is never complete.

I have many faces but only one shines through.

I am a tiger, a bear and a pussy cat yet I only meow.

I am a daughter, a mother, a partner and niece but I am one.

Feel free to comment on what you think I mean. I’d be interested to know.
