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

    my father died recently and he liked to believe that if you lived your life in a good way that when you died you would have a chance to go back to some point in your life and choose a different road...when i was planning the funeral this poem came to me, out of nowhere.. (Report) Reply

    The road not taken is the road less traveled. And the road less traveled is more time spent on the xbox. I don't see a down side... (Report) Reply

    This is without doubt the most misread poem ever written. This is a very cynical poem. To paraphrase: I came to a fork in the road. They were both the same. When I am older, I will say I took the one less traveled. It is a poem about our gargantuan capacity for self delusion. (Report) Reply

    I think He thought it was the road less traveled, when in fact in many cases, the controversial decisions we make are the road less traveled, thus making life what it was always meant to be..what is that you ask? Who can know. (Report) Reply

    Someone once asked Robert Frost what the hidden meaning was in this poem. He simple responded by saying there was no hidden meaning. (Report) Reply

    It seems a lot of people have misinterpreted the meaning of this poem. It is not in fact, as many seem to have interpreted, about the decision one makes in life, but why one has made that decision. Indeed, in the last stanza, Frost remarks how, ironically, he shall be telling [] with a sigh how he took the one less travelled by when actually the passing there had worn them really about the same. This makes much sense when you take into consideration that Frost himself was unhappy with the road he had taken in life i.e. his profession. To paraphrase my earlier point, Frost's poem tells us that it's not one's decisions in life that defines who we are, but our character. Essentially, the two roads are the same. (Report) Reply

    This is one of my favorite Frost poems; as noted in the last stanza, making the right decision makes the difference in the course of one's life!
