What though before us lies the open grave? Like men we'll face the murderous, cowardly pack, Pressed to the wall, dying, but fighting back!”(Claude Mckay, 1919) This piece of the poem talks about how they will fight back and won’t die like cowards and stand up for themselves because they are tired of getting killed for whatever reason. Last, Mr.Mckay is talking about how many people have died scared and haven’t shown no sense of how strong they can be if they fight even if something is going to go wrong. I know this because in the text it states “ “If we must die, let it not be like hogs, Hunted and penned in an inglorious spot, While round us bark the mad and hungry dogs, Making their mock at our accursèd lot”.(Claude Mckay ,1919 )
Sophocles also shows the consequences of actions throughout the whole play, to even include the messenger fearful for his life bringing the message of sighting the buried body, but if he didn’t carry the message when he tells Creon ‘I can suffer nothing more than what is in my fate’. Creon had to deal with the consequences of his actions after entombing Antigone, his son’s wife to be, his son committing suicide to be with his wife in the afterlife and then Creon’s own wife also killing herself out of anguish of the death of her second son. Sophocles wanted to show, regardless of whether you believe in the archaic gods, monotheism, or even if you believe that the rules laid down by the king of the city should be the only rules your actions in this life will always have consequences. As Oliver Taplin notes in his book Greek Tragedy in action, ‘great drama makes universals concrete, and portrays the human condition through the voice and the actions of the human
Simon became his last chance to make everything back into right track and requested a peaceful death. Another instance demonstrated Karl’s repentance was that he remembered he shot the family to death when they jumping out from the window of the burning house. That image remained in his mind and tortured him mentally until his very last second of life. Just like he described in book, “The pains in my body are terrible, but worse still is my conscious, It never ceases to remind me of the burning house and the family that jumped from the window” (Wiesenthal 53). This scene engraved in his mind deeply since he felt guilty toward the family which broke him down mentally and making him unable to move, led to his injury.
Originally, Brutus struggled with his feelings which caused spiritual wounds. These feelings led him to commit suicide because he felt he did Caesar wrong and could not live with himself as a result.

“Feel very sad, down, empty, or hopeless have very little energy have decreased activity levels. ”(NIMH). Victor felt rage, “Villain! Before you sign my death-warrant, be sure that you are safe. ”(Shelley 158).
Perhaps George got tired of Lennie and took his life out of anger as his job and dream of sharing a farm with Lennie became impossible, or maybe George had had enough and killed Lennie because “(…) he [Lennie] gets in trouble alla time because he’s so God damn dumb.” (OMM, 42). On the contrary, after Lennie had killed Curley’s wife George knew what Curley’s lynch mob would come for Lennie and make his death painful by “(…) shoot[ing] the guts outa that big bastard” (OMM, 96-97). George simply helped Lennie the only way he knew how, by taking his life quickly after telling him what he wanted to

Although his crimes were bad, he served his punishment for all of them. However, when he came back, Okonkwo’s tribe abandoned their culture for the Catholic one.

You could blame the war… A moment of carelessness or bad judgment or plain stupidity carried consequences that lasted forever" (115).

The same thing seemed to have occurred for Ishmael, in the sense that his family was killed. He wanted to seek revenge for those who had inflicted the terrible occurrence upon him and his family. Before he was angry though, he went through a phase of being upset. When his family had first passed away, he even told himself: “I didn’t care. I wanted to see my family, even if that meant dying to be with them” (Beah 96).

Reverend Hale tried to warn him of this even till the point when he was hung. Hale screamed out, “Shall the dust praise him [Proctor]? Shall the worms declare his [Proctor’s] truth?”(Miller 134). Proctor’s death was meant to preserve his name, but he ultimately lost his life.
Unfortunately, his life was immediately taken away by a fatal murder that raised Jones’ essence back to heaven.

The fact that one of his valued friends was murdered because one white individual claimed that he felt endangered in his presence was repulsive towards Coates. This memory scorned his perception of reality of society in that he repeatedly reasoned himself that they have a negative perception towards black
