The Road not Taken

A poem, learned long ago..but yet to be understood recently...

The Road Not Taken

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.



aaaaaauuuw... one of my favorites poem.. my favorite line is "the road diverged in the yellow woods".. i cant recall other parts but this particular sentence caught my attention..

a very deep meaningful poem huh? glad you shared this zahra!

Yeah..terkenang zaman blajar english literature dulu, when this poem doesn't really mean anything to me.

But then, as we grew up and grew slightly old..the path taken, maybe the best for us afterall..

Being married to the right person..having the perfect job..semua based on choices we have taken before, kan? :)


jom terjah :)
