The poem The Road Not Taken, I am impressed with this poem,so true,the road
we take can be the right path of our whole lives, but maybe we can be so
wrong sometimes.

the poem road not taken is an awakening of one's decision making. it is
beautifully written to inspire readers to decide critically so as not
ending up with regrets and frustrations in life:-)

I think that Robert Frost is a very wise and incredible poet. For some
people it may be hard to understand the meaning of this poem but it is
because you aren't really looking or you don't want to understand it. To me
it means that the are many roads to take in life anf every person has to
choose the road that they want to take and you have to follow it. It is
being compared to the journey in life and that the road you take me be
successful or it wasn't the right decision but it was your choice. This
poem has a great meaning for inspiration and you have to dedicate yourself.

I like that you ask questions Amanda. Your skepticism will make you a
wonderful wife some day. However, Amanda, you must ask yourself this: Did
God intend for us to think about our lives and the world around us? Did
God intend to give us dreams and rivers and trees just so we could enjoy
them? Or are they conduits to God's kingdom? I believe you must choose,
my dear. As for me, I no longer have a choice.

I am not heavily into peotry. In fact, I'm not even lightly into poetry but
as I have to analyse a poem for school, I have chosen The Road Not Taken.
As far as poems go, I don't mind this one.

I have read so many interpretaions of the meaning of this poem and I'm sure
there is some truth in all of them. But I have to wonder if, when poets
write their poetry, do they intend for poeple to analyse their poems to
such a level? Many poets or writers whose works have been analysed say that
they were actually writing about something far more trivial. I think this
poem does contain metaphors for life but I do wonder if they were intended.

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.
