The Road Less Travelled

 

Sometimes, my friends find me weird. Narinig ko na rin na I am anti social. Isang friend from college thought that I have autism, hehe. Madalas kong marinig na kakaiba ako, pero it doesn’t bother me. Siguro dahil sa weirdness ko, pero most of the time, I often think of this poem that I’ve learned from High School.

 

The Road Less Travelled

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

...Robert Frost
