Fists of steel.

A metaphor is a figure of speech that asserts that something is the same as a generally unrelated other thing. Some examples are:

  • Heart of gold - Having good intentions. A sweet unselfish, kindhearted individual.
  • Cold-hearted - This refers to a person that lacks sympathy, it doesn't literally meant that someones heart is cold.
  • Burning up - This makes the comparison of being hot.
  • Stool Pigeon - A decoy or spy, often referred to as an informant.
  • Narrow-minded - Being biased, not having an open mind or viewpoint.
  • Broken Heart - Your heart is intact but your spirit is crushed. It's being devastated due to a disappointment in love, feeling sorrow and discomfort.
