The Road Not Taken | Poetry

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
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth; 

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
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.
Oh, I kept the first for another day! 
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

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. 

By Robert Frost 

I have decided to share this poem with you because I think it has significant importance. After reading this poem today I knew I had to share it with you because it has a worthy message. The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost shows us that you will always have choices in life that are tough, but you can only do one at a time. Frost says that he doubts he will ever get a chance to take the other road, and just like in real life, when you make a decision, you can't always go back and change it. You will also live wondering what the other choice may have brought you.

Of course everyone has different interpretations of all kind of poetry and it wouldn't bother me if you disagree and want to share your opinions with me in a polite manner.
