“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.
A beautiful poem by ROBERT FROST expressing the choices we have and we make in life. The only difference between the two paths is that one is grassy, implying comfort and ease, and the other contains undergrowth, connotative of roughness and discomfort.
Choosing the grassy path yearning to take the first another day, but deep down inside knowing he won’t.And sighs with a wrong choice he made.
Finally ends with may be an irony saying “I took the one less traveled by”…
Something to be thought of. Think. God is busy. Help yourself. Choice is yours. Make it right. Let our journey be an adventure filled with fun , failures and success. If thinking like a Manav (human) is not working, be an AdiManav(maybe like Flinstone) and try it out. Might work for sure.
