The Road Not Taken - Poem by Robert Frost

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

    The poem: 'The Road not taken' is a beautiful poem; it talks about the choices we can make in life.
    We, sometimes, can be in doubt when we face some situations in which we should take a decision that can change our lives. This happens because we cannot know for sure what it will happen in the future, and we fear the possible consequences.
    This poem helped me too much, and now I took a decision that changed my life: I asked the love of my live in marriage, and now I am so happy. (Report) Reply

    We'll always be met with choices, we've got to be bold enough to make one. God bless you (Report) Reply

    Had only many times heard about the last lines, but never read the whole. Glad I did now, simple and beautiful, an insight into life in a few words-what a poem should be. (Report) Reply

    Choices, decisions, looking back, going your own path, there's so much in this poem, brilliant! (Report) Reply

    Both roads were about the same (the passing there had worn them really about the same, and equally lay in leaves no step had trodden) . So, was it a sigh of satisfaction? That the road less traveled was the wiser, better choice, and the poet is glad he made that decision? It could just as well have been a sigh of disappointment that THAT road was a poor choice and the poet mourns the lost opportunity to take the other path. (Report) Reply

    Many people are like that. They wish to take challenges in life and make stunning discoveries as they travel by the less beaten path. A poem with a message. (Report) Reply

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.....

    It is a common misconception that in life we have to maintain what is commonly accepted as normality. Robert Frost challenges this. The road less travelled by is the Poet's way of telling us that he did not accept the norm he lived beyond the limitations set by others. Walt Whitman is another who challenged the conventional poetry of his time. After all Extraordinary Men PROPEL us Forward, It is our duty to BREAK the law. - The New Vision. (Report) Reply

    To me, this poem is not about two forest paths, but about choices in life. The traveler took the road that not as many people had chosen, because it was grassy and wanted wear. He reflected on it, thinking sadly that he had chosen the wrong path. He took the one less traveled by. And to him, that has made all the difference. It tells us that we should not be swayed by what other people do, such as taking a path just because it was more worn. i concede. (Report) Reply
