-Like Oprah say, “The road less traveled.”

Piper: You know, that doesn’t mean what everybody thinks it means. No, no, no. I’m just saying that everyone thinks the poem means to break away from the crowd and, like, do your own thing. But if you read it, Frost is very clear that the two roads are exactly the same. He just chooses one at random. And then it’s only later at a dinner party, when he’s talking about it that he tells everybody he chose the road less traveled by, but he’s lying. So the point of the poem is, that everyone wants to look back and think that their choices mattered, but in reality shit just happens the way that it happens and it does not mean anything.

“Started back in middle school”
“She took my heart when I was 15”
“I won’t live a day without your love” “You are the air I breathe, you are my everything”
“I remember growing up, looking at my mom and day thinking when I’m older, that’s exactly what I wanna have and I think I finally found it, every since the day you came along”
“Baby you’re my best friend yeah I hope you know”
“Looking in your eyes sends chills down my spinal chord”
“Yeah, girl I love you that will never change”

…make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.

“The Road Not Taken”

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.
