what is the message that the poet wants to give to his readers

Dear student,

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 cannot 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 concludes that the trail that has been less travelled on would be more rewarding when he reaches the end of it. The poem tells us that the choices we make will have an everlasting impact on our lives: we must do so prudently.
