The Road Not Taken

The following Robert Frost poem is one of my favorites. It has always spoken to me but became especially poignant to me after I married. It actually reminds me of my stepmom journey. To all of my fellow stepmoms, I dedicate this poem to you. The road that you have chosen has made all of the difference to your family. 

 

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.
