The Road Not Taken

By ROBERT FROST

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 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.

Help me He might not, yet will I still trust Him… Africa’s greatest emergency can’t get any worse than this…

    Was thinking of this poem the other day and it came up on my blog. It was in the High school english text book- Contemporary English or something.
    I got a 10 out of 10 in class analysing it and has stuck to my head ever since.
