    Personification is just giving a human like trait to an inanimate object. For example: The wind whispered to me. ~Everyone knows wind can't whisper The tree hugged me in tough times. ~We know trees can't hug. Do you understand?

    Simile compares two objects using "like" or "as". Example: The cat chased me like a cheetah chasing a gazelle. Or The rock was as still as silence itself. Got it @Jimboslice

    An analogy is a figure of speech that equates two things to explain something unfamiliar by highlighting its similarities to something that is familiar. This figure of speech is commonly used in spoken and written English. For example: Questions and answers, crying and laughing, etc. - See more at: http://fos.iloveindia.com/#sthash.uhyISFB3.dpuf

    Metaphor is saying one thing is another using was or is. Ex: That cat was a cheetah chasing me! or You were a snail in the race

    Thanks, okay so one of my figure of speeches come from a Bob Marley song. "Preacherman, don't tell me, Heaven is under the earth. I know you don't know what life is really worth." Honestly I can't decide
