“The Road Not Taken”
by Robert Frost
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.
This poem has somewhat resonated in me ever since I read it years ago. Not really truly understanding what it meant that time, and yet, I can feel its “callings”. Only recently when a friend mentioned to me the last three lines of the poem did I realize that I have been striving and struggling to try to take the road less traveled all along.
So as I celebrate my one month “blogsary” with you, having published 7 posts with 18 new followers (WOW!) in just four weeks, I still can’t believe that I am still here blogging on! Who would have thought that I would last this long on my “baby” blog? One month of blogging bliss, some days I come up empty, other days my mind is full of thoughts and ideas. I wish I was a prolific writer and blogger, but alas, life gets in the way and there are days when I really can’t. All I can say is that this certainly has been a wild ride thus far!
Looking forward to another month-ful of stories. Taking this experience one step at a time, one road at a time, one blog at a time. We shall see what happens then….
THANK YOU FOR READING AND DROPPING BY!!!!
