The Road Not Taken

Sebuah Puisi Favorit. Bercerita tentang:
1. Sebuah jalan pilihan yang tidak biasa diambil oleh orang kebanyakan.
2. Didalamnya terkandung makna kebebasan memilih.
3. Di dalamnya terkandung makna sebuah ketetapan hati, bahwa apapun resikonya, sebuah pilihan adalah pilihan dg segala konsekuensinya.


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.


Puisi ini terasa mengesankan sekali, mungkin karena pada beberapa hal mencerminkan ' a jouney of my life'
