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

    I agree with Stacey R. I was thinking the exact same thing. As humans, we actually believe we hold our fate in our on hands with decisions. This is not all the way true. In some cases, yes. Overall, not so much. -Tony (Report) Reply

    I have a slightly different interpretation of this poem. If you read carefully, you can see that both paths are worn really about the same, meaning that both roads have been traveled on (or not traveled on) equally. When he claims that he took the road less traveled by at the conclusion of the poem, you will notice that he says this statement with a sigh, meaning that ultimately, he can't be sure of his fate. He is, in essence, anticipating his own remorse or regret that may result from his chosen path. I think this poem means that we can never be sure of how our choices will play out; as much as we want to believe that we are in full control of our future, every decision we make results in a careful combination of both chance and choice. No matter what road we take, we will always wonder what might have happened, had we traveled a different route. (Report) Reply

    The road is our life. The road is our soul place. The woods represent nature, which moulds us in our travel. (Report) Reply

    Basically, this is about life and our choices to either follow th crowd by taken the road that everyone travels or by going our own way and taking the road less travelled which is usually the best road. Most people go after fun and excitement without any thought of the future therefore taking the broad road that everyone else takes. The best decisions to to take the path that will benefit you most in the end after it's all said and done and that is the road less travelled. (Report) Reply

    The line should be; Oh, I kept the first for another day not marked the first. (Report) Reply

    The Road Not Taken......and the Poet takes the road less taken......thereby walking away from the road not taken.....what contradiction....nevertheless that made all the difference. Good. (Report) Reply
