The Road Not Taken - Poem by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

    This poem is not in fact about the supposed merit of taking the road less traveled. It's really about reevaluating the choices you've made in life, and hoping, sometimes wistfully, that you've made the best decisions in the end. That is the dilemma the speaker faces at the end of the poem. (Report) Reply

    I found this poem on a spiritual journey. A road at times it seems less traveled by. That for me has made all the difference. Praise the Lord! (Report) Reply
