THE ROAD NOT TAKEN is a poem that reminds us me the chutzpah that each one
of us has. We often see in other people or in our own lives how they/we
pass life without ever waking up. They/we never dare to make a choice that
will free our souls to celebrate and joyously ponder on the meaning of
life. Frost succeeded in awakening in us the power of the chutzpah. ... the
road less travelled by ... that certainly has made all the difference. ...
this poem reminds me of a 19th century English poet, William Wordsworth,
who wrote in his beautiful TINTERN ABBEY ...

... for I have learned
to look on nature, not as in the hour
of thoughtless youth; but hearing oftentimes
the still, sad music of humanity,
nor harsh nor grating, though of ample power
to chasten and subdue. And I have felt
a presence that disturbs me with the joy
of elevated thoughts; a sense of sublime
of something far more deeply interfused,
whose dwelling is the light of setting suns,
And the round ocean and the living air,
And the blue sky; and in the mind of man, ...

My father introduced me to this poem on my 16th birthday, so it reminds me
of him. He wanted to teach me the importance of being my own person,
following my own heart, going my own way. I cherish these words now more
than ever, as I and my father get older.

This is an excellent poem on how to live your life. Sometimes you need to
take risks instead of staying in your comfort zone. If you want to live
happily you need to take risks.

The Road not Taken By is a poem that deals with desicion macking. In life
you have many chooses you either choose to go with the crowde or you take a
stand and make your own decision about things. This poem is a great poem
based on the facts of which road you are tacking and the decisions yuo make
in life.
