My road

7/06/2017 Syl's bucketlist 0 Comments



The other day i was talking with a friend and she said, when she heard that I was volunteering, while I in fact needed to take some rest: 'Hun, which road are you taking?'

It made me think of a poem that was taught at school. I loved it so much, that I had it printed and put it on my desk.
My gram and I often talked about traveling through life, that we have to take our own road and not do what others do.
It has been my inspiration through life. Made me realize I have to stay the person I m, and stay true to myself.

It's the poem of Robert Frost.


The Road Not Taken 

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, 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.
