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

    I have loved this poem since I was a kid and I have always wanted to write like this but I took a different road. Now I am going back to 'the road not taken'

    This is the first poem I ever learned by heart and always an inspiration when I choose to take a different path. There is a small homage to this poem in the words of my poem 'Sometimes'.

    The speaker is the person I am familiar with, and acquire a thinking method from. It is a rather clever thinking mode he switches, with moods and moments the road has diverged. The ‘undergrowth’ is definitely a scary topic for the road to be two roads, and adds more horror and not just scare or fear. He is scaring us into finding us the right route in life. He reckons the comparison, or analogy, is a real and strong truth. He is supporting this argument with clever conciseness, and only the ‘undergrowth’ has connotations. It is truly a decision-making scheme the traveller is abiding by. The traveller is cautious and weary, by definition a man who has learnt from this time of a crucial nature. Danger is the thing of the past at the end of the poem, and he has succeeded in the general nature of life. One thing can make the difference between life and death, as he is telling us ‘this with a sigh’!
    It is beautiful to tell of this story, and the poem is thus a story-poem worth remembering to earn the right decision for you as well as the poetic speaker.

    I mean what can we say about this poem - it is legend! I'm not sure where Robert got his inspiration from, but there is another place where this concept or message came from...
    Matthew 7: 13-14 (Bible/Word of God)
    'Enter in through the narrow gate, for wide the gate and broad the way that leads to destruction, and many are they who enter in through it.
    For narrow the gate and straitened the way that leads to life, and they are few who find it.'
