The Road Not Taken..  

Posted by: Nurul

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

I remember learning about this poem when I was in Asma...Before this, I don't really see what this poem is all about...Then, I realized that it has something to do with me...with my life...and perhaps, others too...

When we have to make a decision, we often chose the safest option to go on with our life...and how many people will choose the path that is different from others...?

Like me, for all this time, I always chose the path that other people will choose...For me, it's the safest...and I can see that many people survive that path of life before, to me, it's the best choice...But everything changed when I grew up...I learned that in life, we have to take the risk...there's no easy way to succeed...that's why I've learned to let go some of the things I have in my life...

I think I'm very lucky...I have a good life, wonderful families, great friends, and before this, an amazing boyfriend with me...But a few months ago, a part of my life has changed...

Something happened between me and my first I was quite dissapointed...But now, I can accept that everything happened for a reason...why should I be sad loosing one person while there are a lot more people behind me who love me and care for me..??

I'm glad that I've made the decision to let him go...because somebody once said to me, "cinta tak semestinya bersatu" (love doesn't have to end with marriage)...I think that is the best way for us...and I have accepted the fate...everything have been written for us...I'm happy when he's happy...May be by letting him go, I can help him to find his true love...and I hope he's happy too...

I'm proud that I've taken the other route...the other path in my life...and the hard ones...rather than keeping him with me, I chose to let him go...and I really want to know what this path will offer me at the end of my journey...
