Response to Literature: “The Road Not Taken”

Life is about making choices. This is about a man; a man who must make a decision between two roads: the road less traveled by or the road more worn. He “took the road less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” “The Road not Taken” by Robert Frost is about think about you choices, not to be a follower, and to be unique. It’s better in life to think about your choice before you make them. “And be one traveler, long: And looked down one as far as I could”. He’s one traveler and he stood for a long time at the fork of the road and he looked far to think. When the speaker is looking down “as far as I could”, he is thinking. To be the one traveler with two paths is a choice that has to be made like everything in life, there are choices. You may be thinking that life isn’t about choices, but there is like to follow someone and not be a follower. It’s better not to be a follower. The analogy, if line jumps off a cliff, would you? The experience of the paths by less people might be worth so much more than the path taken by everyone else. For the speaker “that has made all the difference” in which he took the path “less traveled by”. Being unique is also a major role in “the road not taken”. When a person is unique they are more likely to be remembered, they make some sort of a statement. They get to have a different experience than others. The speaker decided to be unique and choose the path less traveled by and to him that has made all the difference. “The road not taken” by Robert Foster is about thinking about your choices, not being a follower, and being unique. The speaker doubted if he should ever come back. However, he liked the fact that he chose the other path less taken. In life everyone should think, not be a follower, and to be unique.
