After watching Orange is the New Black I started to think about the poem, The Road Not Taken because of the episode Blood Donut.

In the episode they talk about the point of the poem and it comes down to this, “everyone wants to look back and think that their choices matter. But in reality, shit just happens the way that it happens, and it doesn’t matter.”

But after reading an article on Slate they say “the joke’s on us, apparently.”

David Haglund, a senior editor for Slate, has speculated that Frost may have deliberately misled his readers. Various quotes from Frost’s correspondences suggest that he knew people would misunderstand the meaning — and their confusion even amused him.

Do you remember the poem The Road Not Taken? Take another read and tell me what you think.

 

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 will make your day
