The Road Not Taken had an emotional impact on me. The poem talking about
choosing which path to choose and being uncertain where it leads to,
parallels to my life. As a teenager I am going through those same
emtotions and also chosing what path I want to follow.

With this poem the aurthor is metaphorizing the idea of life. In every
single day of our life we are in the same position of the man walking on a
road until he finds two diffrent way to go on. By choosing which road we
should take, we characterize ourself adding particulars that make us unique
in the world, and the wilder road u take the more particulare do you get,
even if it's gonna be harder but this is the fun of life.And if u think the
way you took wasn't right just try again!

In the poem: "The Road not Taked" the road is a metaphor to life and the
decisions that we have to make, becuase sometimes in life the road less
taken is the right way to go. The peom uses parrarel strutchure, the 2nd,
3rd and 4th line all begin with "and".

i believe that this poem is about the different paths and choices a person
can make and follow in their life. also that there is a sence of confusion
about what paths are right for a person to make and that can only be
determined by the person themself.

This poem was about a man's journey in life. He uses roads to symoblize the
choices we have to make. He decided he wanted to take the road that not
many other people had taken before. I think he chose this road because he
did not want to follow everyone else's way of life, but instead create his
own goals and memories.

You can only make one decision some times. Right or left. Right or wrong.
SOmetimes the road less traveled is the right way to go. This is explained
in the poem by Frost, called the The Road not Taken.

I read the poem The Road not Taken by Robert Frost and tried to understand
what he was saying when he was talking about two roads in his life. I
believe the road less traveled was the road that he would have preferred to
travel. The roads symbolize people's journeys in life and the road less
traveled symbolizes peoples hopes and dreams of which they have to give up
because they dont have the money or resources to travel that road

This poem by Robert Frost was perfectly portrayed. This poem talks about
how there is two ways to go in life, you can take the beaten track that
everyone else does or you can find your own unbeaten track so you arent a
follower. Frost wants to go his own way he wants to go on that unbeaten
track so he does something new and his own way.

I think the poem is trying to express that you should'nt always choose the
sure way in your decisions, but instead step out and become an individual
and choose your own way. Dont always be a follower, be a leader.

You cant ever pick two ways to go.
