i am only 14 and this poem means so much to me....
it actually gives me hope of things- telling me no matter how hard things
get, some thing good always comes out of it. i write my own poems but they
will never be as good as this one.i hope someone will email me and ask for
one of my poems. i need to know how they sound... please

here is my alternative to Roberty Frost's famous poem:

oh the pain oh the agony
i feel it in my brittle bones
i think I'll lie down and die
but first i should take the road less taken
because then I will be saved
then I will have brittler bones
oh me, oh me

Frost was a pretty dark man, this poem kind of proves that. Read it again,
the two paths were the same, he said he took the road less traveled, but
how can that be? It may have made all the difference in the world, but
what it comes down to is that like all things in life you had a choice to
make, right or wrong, you'll end up lying about the outcome ages
henceforth, and sigh a little sigh a what could have been.

to me, this poem is a great example of how, to make the right choice, you
hav to examine both the advantages and the disadvantages of both options.
you hav to know where you want to go but to do this you hav to awknowledge
the consequences. its a great poem and when read properly, it can mean a
lot.

I think that the poem is very inspiring and would recommend it to all poem
lovers!!! i think its about facing 2 paths that u have 2 choose but you can
only choose 1. the harder 1 might be the best option

I found this poem inspiring because its told me that if i always take the
easy path, it will probably bring me to a lower place than where i would
ultimatly want to be.

I like this poem because it really explains the decisions that you take in
your life. If you choose to take the harder road you will get more out of
it, and instead of taking the easy road which everybody else would do.

the fork in the road can represent anything. You can take one, but not the
other...a hard choice, one you will never be faced with again.
Frost describes this dilemma in a metaphor form. The metaphor being the
paths are life changing descisions in life.
We will all be faced with one of these in our lifetime.
I believe Frost shared his problem descriptivly and emotionally. It's a
wonderful poem that everyone should read.
