The Road Not Taken – Robert Frost

The Road Not Taken – Robert Frost

Today, I read this poem after many years.
It talks poignantly about one’s feelings about Self-Acceptance, how one grows beyond approval or disapproval and finally finds one’s own path through the journey of Life!
I hope it resonates with you too..

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth; 
 
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
 
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day! 
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.
 
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. 
Robert Frost
Wow, such lovely words. I love the last three lines of the poem..and I feel that when its your own journey, it does makes the difference!!
