The Road Not Taken(Thought) - Poem by Poet of the River

A break in the road,
Both ends going on as far as I can see.
The two in front and the one behind me.
A choice I must make, of which path I should take.
Both roughly fare the same,
The two that lie ahead, and that from whist I came.
For these three paths I have seen,
I took that uncharted road in-between, and separate of the three.
A new road apart from the rest, and better suited for me.
And I couldn't have made a better choice.

(Inspired by a famous poet; robert Forest)

    Fantastic Source, Frost is a very inspirational writer, it was the title that drew me in. Roads are a great metaphor for direction in life, being so young you have so many choices to choose from it can be slightly confusing, its always great to take the road your heart believes in.

    Great poem. You can relate this to so many different experiences and it forces you to make a connect to which roads you have, had and await. (Report) Reply
