Solution

The last two lines of the poem mean the acceptance of reality. The poet made a choice and accepted the challenging path. He took an unexplored path in his life. He wanted to do something different, so he chooses the less travelled road. He is not disappointed by his decision. For a common man, the phrase reflects the everyday dilemma one must face to make different choices. No matter, how far the choices take a man in life, one shouldn’t regret not taking the other path and wondering if life could have been better than what it is.
