And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

    Maybe he is talking about wanting to be like everyone else yet when the time came he choose.... to be different from others for the fun of it without having any idea where that will lead, thinking he could always come back but deep down knowing well he can never do that.... told in beautiful haunting words... things that we do in whim or for fun has the power to change us forever (Report) Reply

    The life is all about taking right decision at right time. In order to be prominent one is supposed to take a road not walked by many. It is better to carve out a new way to be remarkable. (Report) Reply

    This poem reminds me that it is nearly impossible to really know the. consequences of each decision we make. Take getting married. How can we truly know who our chosen spouse will be in 5 or 10 years? Who will I be? Yet this one choice alone can have a profound impact on us for the rest of our lives, especially if there are children. IMHO, life is about the. choices we make every day as well as some that appear to have more impact. (Report) Reply

    I love this poem. It shows the dilemmas we face in life, and the hard decisions sometimes we have to make. The right path is not always the nice easy one but our hopes, dreams, morals guide us to it.

    You have misunderstood the poem. Both paths are the same. The poem is about the narrator's perception, and his incorrect attribution of his good fortune to a choice, when it was in fact pure luck.

    It is really a great poem to learn something.attaining a destiny needs some time estimated to it though there are several paths of time.But we have to be able to choose the path of less torments not of lesser distance because sometimes path, less traveled by takes away the beloved things of our life.although it is not certain that the other path would give us ease.

    Psychological studies find that people tend to be less happy when given choices, always wondering what if. That came to my mind when I read it again now. How intriguing! ? (Report) Reply

    It is very clear that the narrator was confused to take any one of two roads diverged in a yellow wood.
    He was perplexed and counted his perfect one which could bring him to his preferable place.There were two roads, one grassy and another undergrowth.The point where the two roads went two different directions standing alone looked for someone who could assist him.But he was failed and thought if he had to come back choosing wrong.So he left a long sigh, and ultimately he took the grassy one which was less travelled by
    inhabitants. (Report) Reply
