The Road Less Travelled

Picture courtesy: My brother

Two roads diverged in a wood,

And I took the one less travelled by,

Gathering all my courage I walked alone,

I lost my way a million times,

Faced thousand storms and a hundred landslides,

With each step I took, my goal moved afar,

Tired of the struggle I decided to go back,

I reached the place I started the first time,

And chose the other road to change this life of mine,

I faced challenges but I could easily cross them now,

I used the skills I learnt while walking the first one,

I won something with each new turn,

And the road offered me a million goals to conquer,

I was elated, I never looked back,

I was what I was because of the first learning track.

I thanked the road that was less travelled by,

For all the differences it made in my life.


The first two lines are from the poem The Road not Taken by Robert Frost. It is one of my favorite poems since the time i was in school. The poem written here is how i think my life is going to turn out in the near future (hopefully).

  1. Outstanding 🙂 I am going to have to live with this on my study board for a day or two for better feel. Will get back to you after that, fair enough ? 🙂


      • Arre impulsive reactions do not go a long way- aisa samjha hai dher saari bevkoofiyon k baad. Issiliye take time reading things that interest me. This poem ( and there is a lovely video recitation on youtube ) is too good, and such tweaks do interest poetry lovers like me…

        Well… Raahein akeli hi sahi, apni honi chahiye…So… 😉
