The Road Not Taken 25 Agustus 2009Posted by ignatiusedy in Poem.
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 marked 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.
by Robert Frost
Henrick Macalinao comment
This was a very nice poem. it makes you realize that life is full of choices, where in you should make your own decision wisely. in life there is no one you can blame when you make the wrong choice. it is you that paints your life in this world. there is no turning back and even if you wish you could travel both ways it is impossible.
this poem also teaches us that think and think not only twice but a couple of times when making decision because we don’t want any regrets when the damage has been done. this poem also teaches us to accept things planned, maybe God has a reason why He leads you to this difficult experience. it is to test your courage and perseverance and act wisely. it is in our hands what better life we can offer to ourselves. finally, this poem teaches us that no matter what happen, whether we make or not the right decision, let us not be afraid to try. ‘A journey of a thousand miles begin with a single step.’
