I first read this in english class and I love how this poem says not to
follow others and to make your own chioces. Not to do what everyone else is
dong. I normally hate poetry, but this poem is really something.

I really enjoyed this poem. I love the way its written. It has a deeper
meaning than just words. It sees past the superficial meaning of poetry.
It's more than words just thrown together to make a cool sounding poem. The
words of this poem resinate through my mind.

The Road Not Taken is a poem that has countless people questioning the
meaning behind the words. Poems are not met to be diesected word for word.
The reader must decide for his/her own meaning.
This poem was written about Edward Thomas, who was a close friend of Robert
Frost. Robert wrote this poem because his friend would regret a road they
walk down. But this poem is a symbol for people to take their own road, to
be different, and not look back at their choices though life. I wish critcs
would leave this poem alone.

This poem was the greatest poem i read it made me think that the littlest
choices you make in life can impact you in many ways. And that making that
choice makes all the difference.

It think it is a really touching poem all about making choices in life and
not regretting them because sooner or later you will need to face the
consequences and there will be no turning back. have no regrets live life
to the full

It simply describes to us what we all have to go through. we make choices
every day and we cannot go back in time and change them.
