i am in 9th and i like the poem because it tells us many things. it tells
us that every one has to make many choices in life at each and every
moment.in the poem the diverging paths has been compared to the journey of
life.it is a biographical poem.
thats all i want to say.

this poet and this piece this poet has written is great it showed that in
life u only have obe path to take so you need to choose it wiseley.. thses
roads for me have been what to do and what not to do and i have made both
good and bad decisions in each i feel that in each u need to make mistakes
but you need to learn from them...i have always tried to choose the best
but the outcome wasnt always like that..but this poem should touch your
heart and show that u have the choice in LIFE!

I have a question for those people who think this poem has a smart guy
chosing a better path. How did he know which road was better? He did not,
so therefore his decision was based on luck. Also, the two paths were the
same. It was his "destiny" to chose the "correct" path, even though the
path he didn't take could have been better.

I've changed my mind I think this poem is quite intersting. Although what
these other comments are annoy me. Pathetic

It is actually beleived that the horse in the scene symbolises the physical
and worldy needs of a human being which urge him to move away and not spend
the time before a mysrerious forest;the forest which ,on the other hand
,stands for the spritual parts of the man kind but whose owner (the human
being )has left it alone to live in a village far from the Woods!those
spritual needs!

I think that Frost is talking about a spiritual journey that everyone takes
during their lifetime. Everyone has to decide whether they are going to
follow God or dismiss him! The narrow, less traveled, path would be
following God because a lot of people don't want to follow Him. In the
last sentence of the poem, he says that the choice between the two roads
makes all the difference. I agree with him. Believing in God does make
all the difference. For a long time, I did whatever I felt like doing.
Now I don't let myself do certain things because I believe that God
wouldn't want me to. I feel completely free now. (more so than I ever felt
before)
2 Corinthians 3:17
Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is
freedom.

Make sure that you choose the right path. It makes all the difference in
the world!

The "road not taken" is more than the decison that we make in live. What we
do affect us and thoes around us. If we make one descion, than that would
influence other, thus creating a chain effect. All of what we do, no matter
how small and insignificant will affect every one. Going to work an extra
tem mintues (for example) could help you avoid a fatal car accident or the
cause of your death. The fact is, we dot not MAKE any descison. They are
already made for us. Our path that we take in life have already been weave
into the fabric of time. Though we can alter certain things (Like what we
wear, who are friends are, are to name a few) our path have already been
decided for us. We just try to make it as "comfotable" as we can. After
all, life is like a piece of clothing. Sometimes certain "thread" comes
lose so we just have to fix it. In the end, though we lose that "thread" we
still have the entire piece of "clothing" or rather, our destiny. So you
see, what happen to our lives will happen and there is nothing that we can
to to prevent it.
