The Road Not Taken

The Road Not Taken - 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.
Perhaps you have seen this poem in literature book, or perhaps you not. I can't recall which form did I learn these before, as I aren't paying much attention back then. But somehow, lately.., the last three rows  in this poem keep haunting me, as if someone keep whispering.., again and again, by my ears...
And, here is me - googling back the poem while writing this.

No no no. It's not the ghost...nothing like that ever happen. 
It is me - the inner me, who is keep rebelling. How can I remember those words? me myself didn't know either. Perhaps my Mr. Brain did his job well in this situation. heh. 

Yes, I had took a wrong path before. Totally wrong path, or way, or road.., or whatever it should be called. It pretty much bothers me right now.
Actually it is not only now I regret, it is throughout the way. I kept hesitating, stopping and sobbing. How can me myself choose this cruel road - damn stupid me!

We have took a path together at first, we did found that diverged road and there, we parted the different way. I do love challenge road, really! but in the middle.., I realize.., it means nothing without you. Only because we can not do the same road, that stupid me made me neglecting you. 

Did you know? It is not only the empty gap which increasing amongst us, there is also the empty heart going along together. If only...yup...if only.., back then, I revealed down some of my ego...=.='


Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Those words keep haunting me again!
I always hope, along my way.., that our road would meet again.., someday.
And there, we would happily going through this journey together - shoulder to shoulder.
Laughing at all bad memories. Keep singing and humming the same song. Act like nothing ever happen. 

Hey. You know what? while googling earlier, I also found this;

Is it a good sign? :)
