The first paragraph has metaphors and symbolizes the choice between two of life’s many options. “And sorry I could not travel both” tells the reader that Frost expresses his melancholy that he could not travel both roads. Frost then states that he tries inspect each of the roads carefully, but couldn’t because the path *bends* in the undergrowth. Frost is curious and wants to know more about the two paths that is awaiting ahead of him.
Frost then explains the two roads that he had encountered. Lines 6 to 8 says that the second path was considered more attractive to cross because of the use of imagery *grassy and wanted wear* and that less people had traveled here and the road needed to be *wore out*. He then felt paradoxical since he describes the second path as *just as fair* as the first path rather than better. The concept is then taken to the third stanza, making stanza two and three to bond. Here Frost states that the paths are “really about the same.” He is searching for a clear and logical reason to decide which road he should take, but it seems like he couldn’t think of anything.
Frost finally makes his decision in the third stanza. He tries to convince himself that he can take both paths, but manages to admit that it is unrealistic. The exclamation point after line 13 expresses his excitement, but his excitement has been dismembered by the line *I doubt if I should ever come back*.
The final stanza declares that taking the road "less traveled by" has "made all the difference”. It illustrates that if you take one path, there will be no turning back. You may be able to change paths in the future, but you can not change the past. That is why making a choice may affect your life. Everyone should make wise decisions before they act. Frost puts himself in a future situation discussing his life in lines 16 to 18. He took the path that was less traveled and made all a difference. This can be considered irony because you would think that he would take the path that was most traveled by people. Frost admits that the second and third stanza that the two roads were equally worn, and it is only in his future recollection that he will call one road "less traveled by".
The theme in this poem is making choices. In life making choices are important and is something to be considered. If you make a wrong choice, it can cost you. Frost is not pleased about his choice since he wants to travel both roads, but he knew that would be impossible. With some logical thinking he finally made up his mind and took the road less traveled and made all of a difference. The poem clearly states Frost's belief that it is the road that one chooses that makes him the man who he is. It is difficult to make decisions because you will never know what the outcome will be. Decisions that people make, whether it is major or minor, will have an impact on their future.
