I have a feeling the answer is
My whole is a path to finding a solution,
Yet part of me leads to my own recognition.
Herring has forever been one of my top tools,
I've always loved using it, especially against fools.
What can one do when they have one of me,
But struggle until they fail or succeed?
Garden flower provided in all drinks.
So beautiful you'll just look at it rather than drinking.
Every single review values it highly.
The glass alone indicates its value.
The best solution when you're emotional.
So good it will shock your system.
Could it be something like
Dethrone the king, cast out the poorest
Revolution repeated summons me soonest
Put the rocks in the sky and the sun in the sea
Either way 'round, I'll still be me
I am (mostly) in crabs, and fish, and in birds
This way I am myself in these very words
Fastest in each of a metronome's flicks
And part of its tastiest ticks
