My teacher memorized this poem when she was in 8th grade and she still
remembers it. My class at school will memorize it adn I want to remember
it all the days of my life. This poem made a difference in my teacher's
life and mine, so I hope it makes a difference in yours. God bless you.

To me, this beautiful poem is a warning of the procrastination of dreams
and goals.Follow your dreams and your heart, or you will have strong
regrets.

I think this poem represents the two roads as the roads to heaven and hell.
He states at the end of the poem that the road less walked on that he took
"made all the difference" which means that he became a christian and it
made him a better person and made him feel better about his depression
problems.

I think that theres an underlying message in the road not taken. i think
Frost is expressing the way he feels about his life, and that the only
direction for him in life is suicide. Going the more alternative way in
life reflects suicide for him. Its a more releiving escape rather than
life.

I love this poem....some of it doesn't make sense to me, but when i sat
down and my English teacher looked at it with me I understood the message
behind the whole thing.

I believe that Robert Frost wrote this poem about his decision to become a
poet. He lived during the Industrial Revolution, so easily could have
chosen a career as a businessman or craftsman. Instead he took "the road
less traveled" and devoted his life to writing works of beauty. Personally,
I'm glad he did :).

i had 2 do a project that had u choose different poems and wut u thought of
them. I chose Roert Frost's "The Road Not Taken" because i find a message
in it.

i think it says that we should try 2 do different thing instead of doing
the same, boring things over and over again. TRY SOMETING NEW! :)
