The Road Not Taken - Poem by Robert Frost

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

    The poem “The road not taken” is a wonderful and simple poem. It’s about the reality of every human being who need to make choices during their lives. I identified myself with this poem, because in my life, I have needed to make many choices related to my career and personal life. And, I haven’t reflected that my choices today can make all difference tomorrow, but Robert Frost’s poem makes me feel I need to take risks and know that in the future I can’t go back and follow a different road, because choices are choices. Ultimately, I can’t forget this poem, because its words are inspiring. They awake a pleasant feeling. For sure, this beautiful poem deserves to be read any stage of life. (Report) Reply

    He stumbles along, with pen in hand, a country road, his thought so bland, a fork in the road, with his ego's distortions, becomes a conundrum of monumental proportions, and so with tedium we travel with this bore, and all one can hope is that the trail he took, was so much longer, that his feet got sore (Report) Reply

    I loved this poem. It’s very nice, It became one of my favorites. The poem shows we have choices in life and that we must choose which is the best for us. The lyrical I, he had to make a decision about which road he would choose in life. Both ways could have a satisfactory result, but only one was chosen. I believe that in periods of my life I always have to choose which the best for me, or at least, try to pick what I think will be the best because whatever I choose for sure will make me happy.

    The poem “THE ROAD NOT TAKEN” by Robert Frost has an interesting theme, because he wrote this poem thinking about his friend Edward Thomas, who went to the first war in 1916. I liked a lot this poem, for the reason it makes me reflect about the choices in my life, and it makes me understand that we will find some contradictions in our life, and then we have to choose a way; a “road”; and thus, face the challenges arisen from our choices. I notice the poem brings us an element of suspense in its interpretation, thus, when you make a decision in your life, you will think about what might have happened if you had “gone” the other way. We may develop a variety of thoughts, because the poem is rich in images, then you can approximate and develop your interpretation according to the words you read. I may observe the poem is related to people´s stages of life, and the author uses the seasons of the year to achieve this kind of comparison.
    Thank you FROST for this reflexive and beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    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

    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
