i love this poem and i think it is about the christianity life.Like the
road less taken is the road to Heaven and the other one looks fantastic but
at the end it is terrifying which ends up in hell. This is an amazing poem
and it should make alot of people stop and look at which road they are
taking and where they are going to end up if they keep going that way.
Maybe you should turn around? stop and think about it.....

In life we have many decision to make, ofcourse our decisions affect our
futre. This poem depicts usually when someone is faced with making a
decision they tend to take the easier path so to speake, those who take the
more austere path typically have great sence of accomplishment. In
conclusion this poem does a prodigious job at personifying and adding
sightful imagery to making decisions in real life.

A person during his life needs to take some decisions: simple or decisive
ones. As shown in this poem, the traveler takes a decision; maybe some
factors or conditions forces him/her to do so. Sometimes, a person takes a
decision in spite of his self dissatisfaction.

Well, seems people's life is full of choices which might cause confusion.
That's why he said"A momentary stay against confusion". Maybe poetry is his
way of "stay". But what does "momentary" mean? Like in this poem, finally,
no matter what you think, you will choose one of roads and confusion of
this phase could over.

OK, whoever said this is about Bin Laden - Frost wrote this in 1916! Wrong
century, bud. The poem itself was not supposed to be as quipped as it is -
it was an elegy to a friend of Frost's whom he walked with, and who always
griped about the paths that they might have walked on instead. When the
poem was published, however, people though it was about personal choice and
didn't understand the references. Even the friend didn't see who Frost
based it off of. But now you know . . .
