Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

    There's always those decisions you have to make, and the ones that change your life are the ones you probably don't think will make any difference. (Report) Reply

    Poets, artists and some other people are creative and non-conformists. They usually take the road less trodden. That road may look nice but have hidden dangers. (Report) Reply

    power in truth
    fascinating how many people love the last few lines and neglect the first part of the poem. as we age and retell stories we tend to exaggerate how big that fish was that we caught when we were 10 years old. Frost says this in a much more poetic way, with a sigh =: -) Ad that's what makes this a great piem, that little sigh =: -) -Rich (Report) Reply

    This poem really out speaks much about people and their destiny and for this matter Frost's destiny to be a poet at which I would presume, he had another choice.... (Report) Reply

    Childish verse
    The virtue of this versifier is that he makes Leonard Cohen look like a good poet. (Report) Reply

    Love it!
    One of the only poems that is not a song, that I like and have since the first time I heard it (a very long time ago.)
    I consider it a reference as a choice between Heaven and hell. I chose Heaven and there is no need to go back and check out the other nicer road.

    It's a great poem, picturing a kind of dilemma which happens to all of us in our life.
    impressive with a direct message.

    Apparently, Frost's poet friend, Thomas, was in a pickle about what to do with his life and Frost wrote this little gem as a jest, IOW, kind of making fun of Thomas. The poem literally makes little sense. Absurd, like Thomas stewing about his own life. You may not like this, but it is not really about being very, very careful to make the right decisions in your life. No, not at all. As another commenter said, and Frost himself said, this is a very tricky poem. Let it go. (Report) Reply

    And that has made all the difference. Nice inference. (Report) Reply

    Man is a perplexed animal, always bisected, could not find out the right way, or the way found does not satisfy, could not understand what to be done. In the poem the poet has depicted the natutal state of mind of human beings....10 (Report) Reply

    This is the human dilemma, but choice presupposes knowledge. (Report) Reply
