I read this poem in school and I thought it was great! It encouraged me not
to follow the crowd which I was doing for a long time anyway so I needed
that encouragement. Then I went to the library and I got a whole book of
poetry by Robert Frost!

The Road Not Taken is a wonderfully written poem commenting on the beauty

i think that the road not taken is a really good poem. i read this poem in
class and we talked about what do you think this poem means to you. i
thought it meant about a man who went throw the woods and there was two
paths and this man took the path that was ugly and nobody has ever taken.
also that the path this man took changed his whole life and thats why he
took it. this poem inspierd me to take chances on different things.also
that i should take a place where nobodt has ever taken.i think robert frost
os one of the best poets.

The poem speaks of the American pragmatism. Its not a matter of making a
choice between the two roads but creating a difference between the planned
approach to life and its creative, experimental and adventurous aspects.

When people read this poem they have in their minds careers,opportunities
and advancement of oneself. In my opinion my best example is Jesus Christ ,
He can choose one road which is to live and be the most powerful king to
rule the world, but He choosed the one less travelled by which is to die
on the cross to save us lowly sinners.And now it is unto us, are we going
to take the road that will lead us to worldly glory and riches or the one
that will give us eternal life...Simple to say it but dfficult doing
it...aah the wit of Robert Frost

this poem is about the choices each person makes in their life. whatever
they choose they can't go back and change it after they have done it. they
have live with their choice, so choose carefully

I first read this poem my freshman year in high school and ever since it
has stuck to me. This year, as I'm entering my sophmore year in college, I
did a presentation on Robert Frost for my literary class. I read this poem
aloud and gave my interpretation on what it means to me. I was so surprised
to find out how many students have never heard of Robert Frost or of this
poem. This poem has really helped me to not be afraid to try new things and
to be open-minded about living in this world. It helps to have a sort of
guide line for when you get to a certain point in life where you aren't
really sure or are afraid of a potential outcome. You never know, unless
you try!

This poem is saying to pick your own life; don't follow the crowd if that's
not what you want to do. I love it
