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

    he said 3 times in the poem that the roads were the same, in fact he said they were both equally worn. In the very end he said he'll tell the story with a sigh... and that has made all the difference. Reading through the comments... no one really seen what he said, I'm glad frost was not a politician!

    frost did not say the roads were the same, they could look similar, but could not be the same as they were going in different directions - diverged. his choice, as in all our lives, was to make a decision concerning direction. he knew he would not come back to that decision point again. the less traveled path was for him.

    The road that traveled less that is important. The great poem of the great poetic mind always. (Report) Reply

    He says the roads were really worn about the same so that was just his choice they seem as if he was describing the same roads

    Wonderful and deep! I had hoped that the road not taken was easy, but it is indeed hard. (Report) Reply

    this poem although heavily antiquated holds excellence because it is easily understood. all you need is to take time to think about what frost has so brilliantly stated. it is wonderful (Report) Reply

    Success needs new ways to walk along so that people follow you..the secret of success is told by poet laureate, my dream poet Robert Frost (Report) Reply

    the poem isn't about success. In fact, it's about the opposite. It's about regret and possibly regretting the choice of individuality.
    Remember that Robert Frost was a realist/nihilist so he would never even talk about success in that manner.

    While this is a pretty awesome poem, and a favorite of mine simply for how it is written, so many misunderstand the intentions of the poem. I'm sure I'm not the only person to point this out, so I won't go into depth, but the poem is basically a mocking of the trend people have of attributing too much of the way things are presently for them to some one single event in their past, as if one single choice, no matter how inconsequential it may be, can alter your path in any great way.

    Note that he says that both roads are really about the same, and that he will only be saying to other people that one road was less-travelled, as if to justify it to himself. Again, it's a good poem, but so many people get it wrong.
