Introspective

The Road Less Traveled
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.
1 What You've Thought!.

They read that to us the day we got to basic training back in the late 70's, I have never forgotten it. Yet to tell the truth now looking back, there are days I wish I had taken the other road that did not lead to basic training but then again I would not have developed into the me I am today with out walking that "one less travelled by"
