              Read the following poem by Robert Frost. Interpret the poem and tell me what this piece means to you.

              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.
