I like this poem because it portrays one of life's biggest lessons- the
grass is always greener on the other side. Each time we make a decision
between two equally worthy choices, after the fact, we always look to the
other choice we did not choose with envy. Another thing it teaches us is to
be independant in our decision making and not choose something just because
it's more popular than the other. It's our life and we should live it the
way we want.

This poem seems to be alot about peace and tranquility. Loneliness and
wandering are also key elements.

The peom is about choices. one option will effect the rest of your life.
The Road Not Taken makes you think about how much different your life could
have been.

The poem The Road Not Taken, i think is about diffrent paths we come along
during our lifetime.The choices we make everyday effect our the rest of our
lifes forever. God has a certain plan for all of us and he has a set agenda
for everyone, so make sure you take the right path.

it's really written quite well. You can tell that he needed to take a
different path. Also, because of certain circumstances you can tell his
life needed to be restored.

This poem makes a statement about life. The character in the poem is taking
the path most people do not take; the path less taken. I believe it is
saying how we as persons, should not take the road of life most others
take, instead travel the way that makes us original and unique. As the poem
stated, we cannot travel both.
