In the poem, "The Road Not Taken" written by Robert Frost is about many
different things. To start off, I think that this poem is about how people
can make decisions that can change their lives forever. Some decisions can
be good but can be bad. If the choice you make is bad, you learn from it
and grow off of it to make sure you do not make the same mistake again in
the future. But, if the decision you make is for the better then that means
that you may have already made a bad choice and learned from it and mde the
better choice. Lastly, this poem also is about, to me, that people will
pick the things they think enhance their personlity and overall better for
thier choices for their future. An example of this is a choice in a career,
living spaces, or just as simple as what top eat or drink.

I believe this poem represents a sense of tranquility and peacefulness. I
think he should add more spice to his poems...but enough about what i
think, what do YOU think?!

I think this poem talks about different paths that people can take.
Everyone has different directions to go in...so choose your choices wisely.

I like this poem because it portrays one of life's biggest lessons- the
grass is always greener on the other side. Each time we make a decision
between two equally worthy choices, after the fact, we always look to the
other choice we did not choose with envy. Another thing it teaches us is to
be independant in our decision making and not choose something just because
it's more popular than the other. It's our life and we should live it the
way we want.

This poem seems to be alot about peace and tranquility. Loneliness and
wandering are also key elements.

The peom is about choices. one option will effect the rest of your life.
The Road Not Taken makes you think about how much different your life could
have been.
