“The Road Not Taken” is a poem written by Robert Frost. Robert Frost creates a wonderful imagery in the poem (Frost et al. 3). Its rhyme schemes pace make it pleasing to listen to and to read. Further to that, “The Road Not Taken” is about decision-making, and how the choices one makes must have an outcome……………………

The poem commences with a decision that the persona is facing. This is described in the image of two roads that are diverging. The narrator states that he could not use both roads at the same time. This is a clear indication that he was faced with a tough and challenging decision to make and it is his wish that he could go both directions and ways. He then decides to study both choices out of his mind (Frost et al. 6). He does this by looking down each of the roads as far as he can. He later decides to choose a fair one. The narrator proceeds to say that the choices he had to select from had indications of resulting in the same outcome. Frost advises that not every choice have a defined outcome that is clear and obvious………………………

This situation can happen in a person’s decision-making process. One can view the entire variable in one choice yet somehow s/he knows s/he should go the other direction (Remy et al. 3). Interestingly enough he decides to choose the second road and this is the point where he makes the active decision……………..

As much anyone might wish to be taken back to the past to try the two roads (choices), it would be impractical. The experiences resulting from the chosen road would have been already felt and even if an opportunity of going back were given, s/he would never really know.
The persona advances on to wind up his journey by stating, “I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence” (Frost 2)…………………
