The Road Less Traveled
Robert Frost has always been one of my favorite poets. His work is easy to read, interpret and enjoy. Its like reggae music for me, just easy going!
This is a very popular poem of his that I never tire of and it reminds us to try something new, expand ourselves and not always take the paths that others have. You will be rewarded for your decisions, as was he....
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 of the difference.
