A stirring poem for us : ‘The Road Not Taken’

When we live, we go through many hardships and difficulties. We also face many kinds of choices. What we choose cannot satisfy us all the time, but we should be able to adapt to the given path and be thankful.

This poem shows a similar situation. A poetic narrator is in front of two roads, which means the path of his life. He chose  a path and walked boldly on that path. The writer said his choice changed his life. This phrase makes readers think that our decision is very important. People can learn they need to be meticulous and careful when they make a decision. And they can notice they should accept their ow choice with confidence after they have made their choices.

 

Let's read this poem and think about what road you are now standing on. No matter how hard your life is, you will be able to gain value.

 

The Road Not Taken

                                                                                  Robert Frost

 

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,             

And sorry I could not travel both

And be one traveller, 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.
