Question: What do you think the last two lines of the poem mean? (Looking back, does the poet regret his choice or accept it?)
Answer: The poet says that he made a decision at the fork to take the challenging path and stood by his decision and has accepted the reality of his life. He has titled the poem, ‘The Road Not Taken’. The last lines, “I took the road less taken, and that has made all the difference, means that his choice to be different was the cause of his life changing for the good or for the bad. He has only said that it made a difference, and not specified the nature of the difference. Therefore, he could either be regretting or rejoicing the aftermath of his choice.
