The poem ‘Road Not Taken’ by Robert Frost:
Each one of us, during our life span or say every day, come to a point in life where we need to make choices. We are often confused, as to which choice to make.We, as an individual, cannot take up all the choices. At every step we need to make a single choice and thats what makes a difference in life.
Whatever our decision or choice is, its important to keep moving on without looking back because in many conditions its very difficult to come back and choose again.On the journey of life, one road often leads to another and one can seldom relive the moments and undo the circumstances gone by. It’s better that we think deeply and have a far sight of the pros and cons, before taking a decision.The choices we make today, alters the course of our life.
‘The Road Not Taken’, A wonderful poem by Robert Frost, combines rustic simplicity with hidden, indirect and implied meanings. It holds out a moral that life is a continous journey full of divergence every now n then. According to him the two roads are symbols of challenges and choices that life has to offer.The course of life depends on which road we choose. He chose the road less travelled by and left the other, willing to travel sometime later in life. But he has gone too far and cannot return back as one road leads to another. He repents for not chosing the other one, and belives that it could have changed his life.
