Reflective Writing Exposition Essay

999 words - 4 pages

People can be motivated to take revenge on others for various reasons. While these reasons may be considered as very serious or rather trivial, they are all motives for revenge. Revenge occurs when a person has been offended or angered by an individual and in result they have the desire to pay them back. People’s opinions on revenge differ from each other, some may believe it is justified and some don’t. Mahatma Ghandi believed that revenge is not the answer and he stated that “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind”. This quote portrays the opinion that if everyone gets even then there will be no one else; if we all take an eye for an eye everyone would be blind. Revenge can be learnt through real life experiences as well as fiction and can be shown as justice or unacceptable. It becomes difficult to determine when revenge can be justified but is revenge always worth it?
My personal experience with revenge isn’t much, and it concerns little things. Revenge can simply be when a person draws on your book, and in spite you would draw on their book as well. It might as well occur in a game, for example my friend plays a lot of game online and this game is to simply ‘kill’ other opponents. Once, her character got attacked by another opponent but she was not prepared for the attack and she lost. Because of this, she was angry and wanted to seek revenge. She then got all her other friends to ‘gang’ up and attack the opponent. Since it wasn’t a very fair battle, the opponent lost. This act might seem childish and trivial, but this is the act of revenge.
In the book “The Loaded Dice”, two stories “Fingers” and “Mrs Bixby and the Colonels Coat” have demonstrated the act of revenge very well. The story “Fingers” was a tale of Londsdale’s well-planned revenge. This story had shocking points and plot twists that makes the story very interesting overall. In the beginning of the story, it was shown that Lonsdale had a reporter over to tell his big ‘scoop’. He begins to tell a story of the well-known witch doctor called Oguko and proceeds to tell her about the women who could not get pregnant but became pregnant after Oguko had pointed his fingers towards the women. Years later, a reporter had possession of the finger and pointed it to his wife who could not fall pregnant, when the son was born though it looked like the witch doctor Oguko and the wife fell into a coma. When the wife fell into a coma, the husband went and had an affair with a ‘whore’ but when he became broke she left him. As the story descends, it was then revealed that the wife that had fall into a coma was Lonsdale’s daughter and Joan was the ‘whore’. The...
