I was a freshman in High School when I first read this poem I didn't know
what it meant then but now I understand. There are many interpretations
about his message, but in my opinion I think The poem is definitely about
making choices and I believe the Road not taken is about breaking away from
everyone else is doing and living how you want to. I have decided to becom
an artist that is one route many dont take and for me "That has made all
the difference" I was unsure about becoming an artist but after memorizing
and reciting excerpts from JFK's speech at Amherst College "Praising
american poet Robert Frost it allowed me to see how important an artists
place in society is so "Two roads diverged in a wood and I took the one
less traveled by" thank you Robert Frost

i can really relate to this poem because in 8th grade i had to choose which
secondary school i wanted to go to. so many of my friends and classmates
were going to Loomis Chaffee, but i took the road less traveled by and went
to Miss Porter's. it was possibly the best choice of my life and this poem
helped me.

The first time I read this poem, I was a school going kid now I am a
working professional, but still this poem forms the crux of all that I do
and achieve, I still remember it verbatim. It has been the most incredible
enlightment for me towads choosing the right path always.

The Road not Taken is about making a decision in life. There is a turning
point in every living creature where it must make a decision. The road
taken by most is a boring choice. Not going to colledge playing around,
living in poverty. Would you take that road?

For the people that are ignorant acting like they know this poem so well,
and saying this poem was about a choice he had to make. You're wrong. This
poem isn't about him, it's about his friend in the war. Just thought I'd
set the record straight.

I really like this poem, the first time I read it, I thought it was about
suicide and him not taking the easy way out by doing it, and that him
living has made all the difference. I know that's wrong but still, I love
the poem

I like this poem because it shows the paths of life. It seems like the good
path he took was the one to work for, but the path he neglected to take was
the easy way out. Good poem, good poem.

robert frost was probably trying to tell his readers that you never know
the out come of your personal decisions but if you "take the road less
travel" that might be the best choice for you cause the road everyone takes
you already know the out come.
