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

    For me the poem by Robert Frost is a beautiful demonstration and reflection about life.
    Sometimes we makes choices, we regret and we can not come back and due to them these are consequences for the rest of our life.
    The poem also makes me think about how the ways of life are. It shows that follow a known way is normal. Its easy, its safe, but choose an unknown way can make the difference.
    This choices makes us different people. (Report) Reply

    I love this poem.The plot is mundane yet significant.About the everyday choices we make in our life.The uncertainty is evident when he says I doubted if I should ever come back..Sure enough, we are like this lone traveler, making our own decisions..decisions that can alter our lives for the good or bad.

    And I chose neither, how sad you say,
    why so doubtful and there you stay?
    You have lost in every way!
    But...I watch and watch the eyes decide
    And listen for the footsteps echos
    after the choice is made.

    Much have I to tell of which road to chose.
    Much do I know of those who've chosen. (Report) Reply

    The poem written by Robert Frost entitled The Road not taken makes us think about some situations that make us choose which way to go! They can be between two jobs, two countries, two roads, two universities or any other challenge that let us confused, unsure about facing the fear of choice. And in our lives indeed, the choices are not always easy, because either we win or lose a lot because of them.
    I still think that even taking a risk of losing everything we have achieved due to our choice, we must move on and if get to fail, at least we will not feel the constant agony for having never tried. (Report) Reply

    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

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