Most people seem to overlook that both roads were equally traveled. It
says so three times in the poem. There seems to be some irony in the
ending; was that road really the least traveled, or is the poet idealizing
his past?

Keep in mind that the last stanzas are not a summary of the entire poem,
but instead are only as important as what precedes them.

I graduated in 2004... I graduate with 435 students... 2 of us went into
the military.. I took the road less traveled by and hes right, it has made
all the difference.

For me, this poem is the BEST EVER that I've read. So simple yet so
touching. I am glad that the Malaysian Ministry of Education had chosen
this awesome poem as one of the poems in our compulsory literature study.
So glad that I have learnt it here in Malaysia.

dear Liu.........
the poet is merely saying that if u take a different path ........totally
new one.........it makes a lot of difference .........hes not mentioning
self chosen ones......jus protraying nature at its best.......

this quote says it all........"dont go where the path may lead instead go
where there is no path & leave a trail..........."

hope uve understood

If the road I take is chosen by myself,then it's the correct one, no matter
it is less taken or not.

I am amazed at all the comments on the past. "Did I take the right road?"
This poem speaks to me of the future. Have I looked to see if there are
other roads than the obvious that I should be exploring?

Are you right now starting to walk past a road less traveled?

For me this poem confirms that no matter what road you take you can not go
back to take the other. However, if you allow God to be the Captian of your
journey you will be blessed no matter which path you take.

This has always been my favorite poem. I tend to apply it to my religious
life...narrow is the gate that leads to heaven...unfortunatly its the one
less taken... I try to always take the road less taken. I love this poem,
it has helped me so much.

The Road Not Taken has been my favorite since I was in high school and we
sang it in choir. It touched my heart then and still does. I used it
speech class in college and when my husband and I renew our wedding vows,
we are going to use it as part of the service.
