The Road Not Taken

So I was reading the book ‘Rich Dad, Poor Dad’ by Robert T. Kiyosaki, and it mentioned the poem ‘The Road Not Taken’ by Robert Frost. I am sharing it here.

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 onto 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.


  1. I learnt this poem in 8th grade. The last line is what amazes me. This poem talks about how there are two roads and him, Robert Frost takes the unused road, which metaphorically means the hard path in life where as the other road, is the easy path which many people take. This poem was actually meant to mock his close friend edward and dedicated to him. Read “Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening” and “In a disused graveyard” by Robert frost. Try Pablo Neruda also. – Pearl

    1. Wow you know a lot about poems. I didn’t know about his friend Edward part. And yeah I will try reading the other two poems, thank you for sharing 😊
