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

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference. - - The famous lines by the poet. These lines also my favourite lines. These lines are applicable in everyday life - A successful person works differently. I love this poem too much.

    If the road you've taken didn't take you where you wanted to go, the road you've not taken must have been the right way to get there. But, if you're lazy to walk the walk, I wouldn't think it matters... (Report) Reply

    So true.. To achieve your goals, you should never be lazy.

    So lovely poem and inspiring one....10

    The roads lay open

    The roads lay open
    For us to reach heaven
    If we have driven with resolve
    All problems can be solved

    I chose the road
    That seemed with full of dangerous trend
    The roaring of lion was heard
    I asked heard to find word

    The reply came straight way
    I was to concentrate and pay
    My whole attention towards goal
    I responded to sincere call

    The road was not smooth
    And threatened with death
    But I surged ahead with determination
    It paid rich dividend and earned distinction

    Roads may present deceptive outlook
    But we need to shake the head
    Think in positive terms
    And turn the tide in favor

    Yes, the road not taken is the ideal road of choice, but only the braves can make it through. (Report) Reply

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.
    Yes, it is the choices that makes us.

    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.

    Truthful.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    Take the right decision at the right time. Trodden path is easier to cross.Face the world boldly and try new thing.
    That all shows your willingness and taking Risk. Nothing ventured nothing gained.
    Success comes to those who dare and act.

    Neither path is more or less trodden! ! !

    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
