The road not taken indeed.



This post is in fact a reply to Solilo's post here.

"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, The road not taken.

I took the road less travelled by in my life. In fact I'm currently on its rocky path... It's not easy... I didn't know it would be this hard, but had I known also, I would still have taken it, because it's the only way to grow. To achieve one's highest potential...its the only way.


And it's a long road,

It's often lonely...but you learn to be your own best friend.
It's rocky but that only makes you overcome obstacles.

It's twisted but that only makes you realise that honesty and straight-forwardness are the easiest way to go.
It's scary, but that only makes you more and more fearless in all your doings, makes you brave enought to stand up for whats right. For yourself and for someone who isn't as brave.

It's got potholes in it...a lot of potholes, but they only serve to make you more resourceful and have faith, that where there is a pothole, there's also a ladder nearby to climb out of it.

There maybe a few like minded travellers out there, and they will pull you along when you get tired, they will remind you, how amazing it feels, to make it, all on your own.

Yes, for all its pain, the road less travelled is the only one worth taking...

17 lost souls found themselves in my mirror....:

But as the poem by Robert Frost says, taking the road less travelled-by has "made all the difference". I am sure you have made the brave and right choice by sticking to your convictions.

Coffee, As I already mentioned on my blog..bravo! I loved your thought and lines. It is fun to be different and feels good if we succeed in it.

But the poem is titled ‘The Road Not taken’ which people misunderstand as ‘The Road less traveled’.

I believe 'the road not taken' simply mean the other road..the other path.

Reminds me of DDLJ when Farida Jala insists SRK to elope with Kajol and SRK replies "zindagi main do raaste aate hain, ek sahi magar mushkil, ek aasaan magar galat..."

A nice adaptation of the poem and it is certainly nice. There is a kind of electric zing in your posts dunno why!
