People make decisions every single day even if they know it or not Whether it is an important decision as in buying the right car or a little decision as in deciding what to eat for lunch No matter what the decision maybe one has to make choices everyday Although it may be the wrong choice later on no one has the ability to look into the future But one must move on even though it may not be the right choice Robert Frost explains this well in The Road Not Taken in which he describes a situation where a person is at a fork in the road and has to make a decision on which path to takeIn the first part of the poem Frost compares and contrasts the two roadsAnd looked down one as far as I couldTo where it bent in the undergrowthThen took the other as just as fairAnd having perhaps the better claimBecause it was grassy and wanted wearThough as for that the passing thereHad worn them really about the sameIn leaves no step had trodden blackThis part of the poem explains that the choices one should make should be well thought out before actually deciding Meaning hesitate before taking action to the decision to think it over which will lessen the possibility of choosing the less satisfying choice That is why people make choices in the first place to get the better side of the decision Frost also expresses the idea of hesitating before taking action in the third and fourth line saying And sorry I could not travel both And looked down one as far as I could These two lines are especially important because it can be associated with all types of decisions The third line points out how one cannot choose all the choices which the majority of the time is true and the fourth line points out again the importance of evaluating the choices
