The Road Not Taken

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

    Defines me. If i wouldn't have taken the less traveled road at a high point in my life - sigh! can't imagine where i would have landed today.

    This poem gives a good idea about choosing our profession.

    Strange the title when it is not what the poem is about. Or is it? The 'sigh' is an expression of regret I think about the road not taken: the choice of one road implies the renunciation of the other - and all its mystery and magic. Was all the difference good or bad? What unspeakable, unimagined and unimaginable destiny our choices portend! So allow an old man his boast: I lived decisively and acted as only the brave can act, trusting sometimes only to gut instinct; I accept the consequences and live steadfast and true. But the old man keeps his sense of irony. TS and Stephen W are right too - probably more right than I am, although I don't accept that the boast is an outright lie. We humans are morally ambivalent - a condition which forms the bedrock of irony.

    This is perhaps the most beautiful poem I've read about freewill and our ability to choose our destiny, path, or way in life. Another message he attempts to show us through this poem is the irrevocability of our decisions and choices.

    Robert Frost's poetry rocks!

    I love the poems of Robert Frost. Their philosophical significance and implications are deep. This poem is delightful and deep and I spent the past one year crafting a poetic response, based on past 30 years of studying, applying and learning from the wisdom literature of the world. I have used the same title The Road Not Taken and hope to share my experiences with readers of poems. Thanks, Merton Lee, Singapore

    This is a great poem. Beautiful, poignant - in a completely different class from Maya Angelou.

    when we involve with the known business and compete with one another, many business have failed, because one out of ten business entities manage to survive after 10 years and we see the red ocean in people's life as these businessmen and their associates are burdened with debt and other emotional issues,
    If we venture into the new business which is less practiced, we may catch many fish in the blue oceans, where the fish are not killed for the survival of others, so the path less traveled can be chosen for our future endeavors..
