Robert Frost explains how he follows the path which is less traveled and
creates his own future. Using both imagery and abstract ideas, Frost
emphasizes on how he only has myself to rely on to succeed in his dreams.
Friends were not a major priority to him, his main priorities were only his
parents and his wife, Elinor Miriam White.

In life we have many decision to make, and ofcourse our decisions affect
our future. in this poem Robert Frost uses imagery and places two roads in
front of a traveler, showing that in life we will have to make choices.In
this poem one of the choices was easier than the other and thats what
happens in life some times it looks so easy just to take the easy way but
in the end the harder way pays off two

Often in life we are confronted with making decision, some big others
small. This poem depicts that usually when someone is faced with making a
decision they tend to take the easier path so to speak, but those who take
the more austere path typically have a greater sense of accomplishment. In
conclusion this poem does a prodigious job at personifying and adding
sightful imagery to making decisions in real life.

This poem was very interesting.
it tells you that you have two decisions in life. You can always take an
easier way out but it wont turn out the way you wanted to end or you can
choose the harder way but it just might turn out the way you want.

In this poem I think that Frost is trying to say that throughout life we
are usually at a crossroad of difficult decisions. No matter which way you
choose you should back up your decision with confidence. He uses imagery to
get his point across.

To me this poem has a very good message. I would say Robert Frost is
saying that when people choose their own path in life and don't follow the
crowd they will get much more out of life. If we take the "road less
traveled by" it may be more difficult but in the end we will get much more
out of it. He uses good imagery of the two roads and it gave me a better
visual and made the poem more interesting.

I'm not sure if Frost means the ways in our real life, but what i would
love to say that, political makers should take and follow the right path in
thier ruling time in the governments. You would say that it's not lnking
with what he says, but politically we make a lot of decisions not
recognising the situation that they are in, this poem in my opinion is
showing the challenges facing those politicians to follow a righ route, not
being hurtled makers of decisions, and think twice before doing that, after
that, they regret what they have made!!
Actually, Life is like a rose if you touch it smoothly you will get and
taste the beauty, but if you touch it hardly, you'll be hurt.
I think Frost wants to justify the hardness of life and show us the way of
happiness to be satisfied people in our life..

I wish that my explaination is jusstified.
Thank you so much for Frost for every thing and poems.

i think this poem is saying that in life we are faced with tough decisions
and of course, we have to make a choice about which way to go, like the
fork in the road, they are the two options he has which are layed out in
front of him. one way may be the easier option but not always the best, yet
it seems most people are attracted in that direction because it takes less
effort. the other is the harder way, but the better way. so, perhaps Frost
is saying that if you take 'the road less travelled', you will find greater
contempt than if you took the road that had been worn away... hahaha, i
have no idea what i just said...!!! too much procrastinating has destroyed
my working brain!!
