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

    This my friends is my favorite poem. I had to recite this poem when I was in the eighth grade. I of course received an A+. I still remember the first five lines! ! ! ! This truly states that you don't have to be like everyone else and take the same path. Because you take the other path does not mean that you are lost. You are just different from everyone else. It shows that you are creative and that you are courageous to see just what that other path holds. (Report) Reply

    This poem symbolises that point in a person's life where they would have to make a major decision - a decision, that determines one's destiny. In this poem, Frost represents two choices before him as two roads. In one, he could see what would happen ahead - and the other, not so clear. Eventually, he decides to make that decision/path that people wouldn't normally take. Initially, he thinks that he could always revert to the other choice if the path he took doesn't satisfy him, and yet, 'knowing how ways leads on to way, [he] doubted if [he] should ever come back' - as time passed, and as things in life lead to another, he stuck to his path/decision. In the last paragraph, he reflects on that major decision-making with a 'sigh' - of contentment or satisfaction - that he had two choices, and he chose the less conventional one - this choice of his 'has made all the difference' - as it determined the shape of his life.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
