Everyone is a traveler choosing the roads to follow on the map of their continuous life A straight path never leaves speaker with one sole direction on which to travel Robert Frosts poem The Road Not Taken is about how the choices affect speakers life Frost illustrates speaker to make a difficult decision about choosing one of two equally promising roads to travel on When speaker comes to a fork road a decision needs to be made Both paths are different and choosing the right one will depend on his past experience It is this way that he chooses to decide where he is going to travel Throughout this poem it is obvious that decisions are not easy to make and each decision will lead him down a different road to travel In any case however this poem clearly demonstrates Frosts belief that it is the road that speaker chooses that makes him who he is The speaker had two roads to choose from and wonders what would have happened if he had taken the other road The poem begins with simple sentence Two roads diverged in a yellow wood as the speaker sees two roads before him and obviously he cannot travel on both at the same time He tries to consider the consequences as he looked down one as far as I could However each road bent in the undergrowth as where each road obviously different It is unclear to him what the consequences would be if he chooses either road Frost states And sorry I could not travel both that shows the point in which speaker will choose only one path in which to travel on It is always difficult to make a decision because it is impossible not to wonder what will be missed out There is a strong sense of wonder before the choice is made because he knows that in one lifetime he cannot travel down on every road
