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

    This poem is actually about how our choices do not matter and things happen. An example of this would be when Robert Frost says, Though as for that the passing there, Had worn them really about the same, . This means that the road were basically the same. He also states this when he discusses how they equally lay. (Report) Reply

    I took the road most traveled.
    The other that dipped at the horizon;
    for I was sure a crowd would keep me warm
    For i was sure not to loose my self.
    Albeit to you Mr. Frost
    I say thank you,
    your journey and the journey of those like you
    make whole the map that leads to eternity. (Report) Reply

    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference....... Got that (Report) Reply

    while recited the poem in my mind along with the video record I was in a perfect emotion of soothing effect and peace in my mind and no doubt this is not telling a bit of exaggeration but a fact I felt. This poetess have shown her brilliance of poetical talent in few lines where the best of path the diverged roads in the wood selected that I feel is the path of poetry the rare people with gifted talent only can select. Thank you poet in having got such a poem in the mind and also in the media on our attention as readers. (Report) Reply

    I recommend my poems as a contrast to the above: The Cubic Wood, a longer poem, as well as Escape and Do Not Follow in the Footsteps.

    They are available on my profile. (Report) Reply

I want you to know
