Lines 13 and 14

Yes. I agree that the first three stanzas of this poem are about the humans
ability to overcome obstacles. But I believe you are neglecting these last
two crucial lines.
"And, tired of aimless circling in one place,
Steer straight off after something into space."
Obviously there is something other than the humans ability to overcome
obstacles implied in this piece. Possibly Frost has acknowledged peoples
tendency to stray from their goals and aspirations. After years of striving
and searching and "aimlessly circling in one place" we as human beings find
a new object of desire and simply "steer straight off after something into

Some people seem to think this poem is about human ability to overcome
obstacles, while others think it is about how while we try to overcome
obstacles, we ignore the beauty of nature around us. I think it may contain
double meaning like that in Frost's "The Road Not Taken", where many assume
that the narrator is glad he took "the road less travelled" because it gave
him a different experience, and fail to realize the sorrow of the speaker
that he cannot experience what both paths have to offer.
