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

    A master piece.
    ... and I,
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    The act of decision making must be executed with much agility. For once you make choice you must live with its consequences any ways, because way leads to way unending.

    The popular choice now may not necessarily be what you need make a difference. And just deviating from the popular choice may not also necessarily make all the difference. The choice must come after deeper intelligent thinking ....And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;
    ***
    ... and I,
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference. (Report) Reply

    It goes through the marrow of the soul, asking you which road will you take- with the heart answering: the road not taken, the road forsaken, due to its sacrifice and pain, the road not taken I would choose again and again (Report) Reply

    long I stood And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other


    The poet tells us that of the road he DIDNT take he stood studying for a l-o-n-g time and that he looked down it for a l-o-n-g way until it turned off into the mysterious undergrowth.and disappeared into the wilderness. Wow! Could this be his path to adventure and discovery? No way! Not going to go into the unknown!

    With that, the poet switched instantly to the other road. He took a cursory glance at the grass under his feet and observed it to be worn minutely less than the other road. Obviously, it wanted wear so he took that road.

    It enters through the marrow of the soul into the deeper inner most parts of thought and asks the question- which road will you take? I choose the one less travelled on. (Report) Reply

    This is a beautiful poem about loss and regret. It is actually about the 'road not taken', the path or option in life which had to be left, rather than the one he actually took. He would have loved to know what the other road would have revealed to him, or where it would have led but, as in life, we cannot travel both paths and 'be one traveller', and even if we tell ourselves we can always return 'another day', we know deep down that this will not happen as 'knowing how way leads on to way' life's circumstances will change and we will forever wonder what if......?

    An iconic poem about choices. Part of human consciousness now. One of my great favourites. (Report) Reply
