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

    Often as we are starting on a journey after high school, deciding on a new career, deciding...it isn't easy. It is oft with fear of failure, of not knowing what is down the road a bit beyond our view that we stand with trepidation while attempting to decide which way to go. Taking the first step is the bravest of course, staying on the path or knowing when to change is even more challenging!

    Do you. Ever inspiring and encouraging. Thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply

    inspire the success as one act during the situation... silently make the dicision when one walks on the path of destiny (Report) Reply

    Its easy to take the path already chosen by others, tested and frequented by many but really difficult to take the other path where the person doesn't know what difficulties he may face and what would be the consequences of such decision. (Report) Reply

    This is very uplifting! Robert manages to relate to almost anyone who reads this poem regardless of how exclusive it sounds. Timeless! (Report) Reply

    I think people assume that he felt he made the right decision to take the path he did and overlook the part where he says that he will be telling it with a sigh. I think he actually regrets the choice he made. (Report) Reply

    Life often brings us to a fork of choices...where there are many a different paths & routes to the one or different conclusions. It is our own freedom to decide which way to go. Life is such... A good decision is one which ends with a positive note...again ENDS with a positive. So its always a difficult decision to start.
    PEACE n LOVE...to all (Report) Reply

    I believe he is saying he did not really take the less traveled road. He knows he will admit this later in life. We rarely regret the thing we have done, but often think about the chances we did not take. The old “if I had done this or that, where would I be today”

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence (Report) Reply

    Lovely. One should attempt to probe what is not known hitherto because the life is too short to be wasted in popular persuits. Life should be meaningful and explored to the hilt. (Report) Reply

    One of my all-time favourites. Decisions, and the fact that some are final. Lovely. (Report) Reply

    The most beautiful lines in this poem are saved for the last. He knew the decision that he has to make wont be an easy one and hence many years later, he might actually remember this heaving a sigh. The decision that he made is sure to make a difference in his life! (Report) Reply

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.

To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
