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.

this poem is cool i guess. it shows that we can only choose one way to go.
You cant ever pick two ways to go.

i believe this poem is about a man not knowing which way he wants to take
in his life. He is saying once you make a choice you cannot just go down
the other road if you know you make a mistake. You live with the choices
you make.

i believe that he's trying to prove that even if most people in your life
take a certain path if it doesnt suit you go the other way. Everyone has a
fork in the road in thier life at one time, and its just a matter of how
you want to deal with it. In other words don't be a follower, be a leader
and lead, to a different kind of happiness in life.

In the poem, "The Road Not Taken" written by Robert Frost is about many
different things. To start off, I think that this poem is about how people
can make decisions that can change their lives forever. Some decisions can
be good but can be bad. If the choice you make is bad, you learn from it
and grow off of it to make sure you do not make the same mistake again in
the future. But, if the decision you make is for the better then that means
that you may have already made a bad choice and learned from it and mde the
better choice. Lastly, this poem also is about, to me, that people will
pick the things they think enhance their personlity and overall better for
thier choices for their future. An example of this is a choice in a career,
living spaces, or just as simple as what top eat or drink.
