The Road Not Taken

In my last post, I took you into the two paths I could take in this cancer journey.  As I sent that to you, I remembered one of my favorite poems by Robert Frost, studied from college days.


So I popped it up in google and read it through.  It is still powerful in regards to the paths of life we take.  I thought you’d enjoy reading it as you walk your path of life.

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, 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.
