This Path Maybe Difficult

The name of Allah the most mercy and the gracious...

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.

Pernah dengar tak poem ini? The Road Not Taken adalah poem yang dipelajari di sekolah menengah suatu ketika dahulu. Poem ini menceritakan tentang membuat pilihan di dalam hidup (lebih kurang macam subjek U2, Kemahiran Membuat Keputusan). Saya masih ingat lagi ajaran Puan Hanitta mengenai poem ini, ketika itu saya belajar hanya kerana suka dan minat.

Tetapi apabila semakin jauh perjalanan hidup, poem ini mempunyai maksud yang semakin mendalam bagi saya. Penuh nostalgic dan kenangan. Saya, anda dan kita semua pernah menghadapi cabaran dan dugaan dalam kehidupan ini.

Di mana kita berada sekarang, itulah pilihan yang kita pilih dahulu
. Apa yang kita pilih sekarang, itulah bakal menjadi masa depan kita. Bukan senang nak capai apa yang kita ada sekarang, maka bersyukurlah.

Terima kasih kepada Teacher Az kerana sudi menerangkan tentang poem ini. Saya rasa memang patut dikongsi bersama dengan teman-teman akan nasihat orang yang makan garam dahulu daripada kita.

Boleh check di blog Teacher Az : P A L A C E

ps/: selamat menempuhi semester baru kepada semua teman-teman MySpace

I have also chosen to take the road least taken as well. Sure, there are challenges along the way but t is those challenges that help us to grow. =D
