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 . . .

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.
