The Road Not Taken

Earlier today I was reading a blog about the need to determine your own path and not be led by others. This reminded me of this poem, and the problems in deciding which path to take. Presented woth a simple choice of these two paths, I wonder which would you take and why?

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 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.

Sometimes taking the wrong path, is the only choice your heart leaves you.

I think, given the choice, we would take the easier path...but more times than other...we take the hard one..

If only we could tell which one is the easier path, but perhaps we grow deaper as people taking the thard one.

Its a pity the head and the heart do not always agree
