The Road Not Taken

Mirrored image taken from (Rose's Murals)

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.

by Robert Frost, 1916

Have you, would you, wonder? Had I not gone the way I did, where would I be on the road not taken? Should I continue on the road less traveled by?



Ah... The Road Not Taken... ever wonder either the grass on the other side is greener??? Well, if we ever made a decision, it is either choice A and choice B... but both of them will get us to the same destination... so it is better not to doubt yourself regarding the road not taken because it will make you feel doubtful and bad about yourself.

Whether the "destination" will be the same depends on your definition of "destination". Polar bear missed the point la.
