The Road Not Taken
The poem ‘The Road Not Taken’ by Robert Frost revolves around the central dilemma of making a choice in life. It is rarely that people get a chance to make a choice but the poet gets an opportunity to choose. He comes to a fork in the road he is travelling upon. One path disappears into the undergrowth and the other, though attractive, seems to have been an infrequent choice since it looks rather fresh.
He looks down both the roads and thinks about the place where these roads would lead. He feels that the road less travelled by would be more rewarding and saves the other one for another day although he knows that one path leads to another and that he would not get a chance to come back. The man then says that he will be telling this story with a sigh someday in the future suggesting that he will wonder what life would have been like if he had chosen the more walked path even though the path he chose has made all the difference in his life.
