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.

I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence; After choosing a path, it's not easy to know it's value unless we worked for it. It took the poet ages to understand the reason on the benefits of having travelled through the less travelled path.
Every time I read this I have to think....I once was offered a road less travelled and didnt take it. I was never offered it again. Where would I have ended up? I think it was fear that made me stay on the well-worn path........? Amazing poem.
