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; 5
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, 10
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. 15
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.
~ Robert Frost
This is about the only poem I remembered from high school english, I guess it was the only poem that actually meant something to me. Most of the time I didnt "get" poetry. I was more a visual artist.
So far I think I have taken the More trodden path in life, even though I never intended to. I always thought and hoped I could have both. I want to try, learn and experience so many things. I don't think one path is enough for me.
so this year I'm going to make a goal....to try that untrodden path alot more, to take a risk and to get out of my comfort zone.
Lets hope I can stick to it!
