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

    A great poem from the great poet. In real life the humans always confuses to which direction or road we have to select. (Report) Reply

    It is a very well written and thought out poem, it describes how someone could take a risk, or take the easy way out, but mostly everyone takes the smooth grassy path, but the smart people who challenge their minds, take the rocky, bumpy path that is hard to travel and very tiring, but they keep on going through determination. He always amazes me with his rhythm and other poetic devices. He also takes a simple thought and extends it in an exeedingly amazing way that (I admit) I wish I could do myself. (Report) Reply

    A very simple looking poem with profound nuances. As some one said here, there of course is some confusion about what Frost really meant. However, I would like to go by the simple explanation that this poem concerns choices that we face in life and the decisions we take with a certain amount of risk. One can recapitulate on one's decision on a later date when the path has been walked - of course, with a sigh. But Frost definitely means taking the decision is the real difference that is made.

    This poem confuses me. Perhaps that's quite the point. Like abstract art there's no definite meaning, it's all about perspective... (Report) Reply

    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.
