In daily conversion, or in speeches, it’s common to use metaphors and similes. Where a metaphor is a figure of speech in which a term or phrase is applied to something to which it is not literally applicable to suggest a resemblance, as in “A mighty fortress is our God.”, a simile is also a figure of speech, but it compares two different things that both have the same properties or characteristics. 

Because they are similar, they are often confused and used intertwined as metaphors, which is another different figure of speech used for comparison. An easy way to distinguish a simile, is than is to look for the words: ‘as’, like’. Thus, the best examples of simile include ‘as’ or ‘like’ such as “as black as coal”.
