Poem

Robert Frost (1874–1963). Mountain Interval. 1920.
1. 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; 5
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, 10
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. 15
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. 20

A very meaningful poem. The author faces a crossroad, and he has to CHOOSE which path to take. There is no way he could take BOTH the road. This is a resemblance to life. In life, we have to CHOOSE 1 from the 2. We cannot be greedy and naive to think that it is possible to travel both roads at the same time! A choice has to be made!! In life, there will be difficult decisions, but no matter what, a choice has to be made. Either you take the first path, the second path, or just leave the path.
