Solution

The poem "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost is about the  choices that one
makes in life. It tells about a man who comes to a fork in the road he is
travelling upon. He feels sorry that he can not travel both paths as he must choose one. Frost uses this fork in the road to represent a point in the man's life
where he has to choose the direction he wishes to take in life. As he thinks about
his decision he looks down one path, as far as he can see trying to foresee
what life will be like if he walks that path. He then gazes at the other and decides that the
outcome of going down that path would be just as pleasant. At this point he
concludes that the trail that has been less travelled on would be more
rewarding when he reaches the end of it. The man then decides that he will save the
other path for another day, even though he knows that one path leads to another and
that he won't get a chance to go back. The man then says that he will be telling
this story with a sigh, someday in the future suggesting that he will wonder what
life would have been like if he had chosen the more walked path even though the path
he chose has made all the difference.
