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 love this poem, as i always have. To me it means following your own individual path instead the paths of other, which is what i aim for. I strive to be my own unique person.

    I love this poem a lot.. :) Robert Frost expresses as to how sometimes when we are at a crossroad in life and how the decision becomes conflicting as neither road is a promising one. One seems conventionally acceptable and the other looks less obvious; but at the same time not promising a long-term reward. It is only less obvious. It is then it becomes a matter of an individual choice and taking responsibility with everything that follows with it. He also adds a slight humor in the end when he conveys that when a person indeed makes an unexpected decision like the other road; how he/she wears a unique air around oneself - I shall be telling this with a sigh; Somewhere ages and ages hence.......And that had made all the difference. When in fact it was just a matter of To each, his own..

    In Robert Frost's time if you choose poetry writing as your profession you are inviting your doom, as most of the poets of that time used to be poppers.But he still chased his dream and became world famous.'A BOY'S WILL' is his writing piece which has the same idea.So whether this poem highlights his regret or not......is interesting! ! !

    I see this as more of a poem of regret. From Frost's word choice, And sorry I could not travel both, we get a hint that he regrets the road he took, as well as the line in the last stanza, I shall be telling this with a sigh. But that's only my opinion. The beauty of this poem is that it can be interpreted many ways. Despite the way you put it, it will always be one of my favorite poems ever written.

    A Life Course not Followed

    A Short Story by Robert Frost

    On my journey through life I recently had to make a choice between two possible ways to follow next. I was somewhat disappointed that I could only take one of them. After a long hesitation I did make a choice and decided at the same time that at some date and place in a far away future I would sighingly spread the word (as I also do now) that of the two I had chosen the way fewer people had followed, although when I made the decision I did not know that- only that I considered the one direction somewhat obscure in outlook and the other slightly more fresh and attractive, while at the same having to admit that they were actually pretty much of the same pristine character. I did realise though that there would be very little chance that I could ever retrace my steps. So I decided that in my future account I would add to my choice of the less common option that this had made all the difference - whether good or bad I would wisely leave unsaid, since it was impossible know then; I could only guess that the difference might be huge. And to add to the confusion I chose a title (as you can see) implying that this story would be about the other option, which of course I had no experience of and thus neither could nor did say anything further about.

    Afterword: I am so pleased that this story has inspired such a large number of especially young people in the United States of America, and elsewhere in the world. R.F.
