This poem is written by Robert Frost, and shows that in life you may have
many obstacles in your way and you have to make certain decisions based on
facts or gut feelings. If you end up making a decision that is not right
for you then you cannot turn back and have to live with it, but something
good may come of it. Things come your way for you to learn and gain
knowledge from. With every wrong turn you make, you learn more about life
and whats right for you specifically.

This poem shows that Richard was a normal appearing man to most everyone
and had a lot of money. When he went home he was depressed and would hide
his inner feelings. The author uses words to make you almost feel sorry for
richard.

what this poem says is that you can make choices in life, but once you made
a choice you can not go back on your decision.Robert Frost says that he
picked the road less traveled on. In life you often look back on decisions
but if you go with what you feel you should feel confident about the "road
you take"

This poem not only applies to nature, but also to life in general. It
describes the ups and downs in life
pretty well. I also remember this poem from the book the "Outsiders." It
shows that good moments sometimes don't last as long as they should.

For me this poem show the need to be openminded as with most of his poems
it can be looked at differently by optomistic people. Frost does not tell
us whether his outcome was good or bad rather I believe he wishes for us to
think upon and decide for ourselves.Also he creates a sense of finality
which shows that he knows he is not able to go back and accepts this as a
part of life.

This poem has showed me that its not a road that you have to take
necessarily. It can also be the choice that you make like making a good
decision or a bad one. There is always the path that you want to take but
then there is the one that can inter fear and contort your decision. This
poem has truly opened my eyes to making a good choice on where my life is
headed.

I think that this poem is saying that we are free to choose but dont know
what we are choosing between. The title suggests anticipation of remorse.
It is "The Road Not Taken" which sounds a little strong.

This poem is very inspiring. It explains the decisions that you decide to
take in your life. You always have to make choices. If you choose to take
the harder path, then you will get more out of it, unlike everyone else
that usually takes the easy path.

The poem "The Road Not Taken", by Robert Frost to me expresses
individuality and imagination. In the poem, Frost speaks of a road with 2
paths to choose at one point, but this also occurs many times in life when
you ask yourself if you should do what everyone else is doing, or try out
something else. Frost's poetry was not like anyone elses, and i think in
this poem he wants us to be the same way.
