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 marked 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. 



It was funny that as I read and reread this poem, a Chinese song came into my mind...."Everyone is Number 1" by Andy Lau. 

I decided to post the meaning of this Chinese song here as well:

My way is not your way
My plight is not your plight
Everyone has the potential and capacity
Achieve and to conquer everything.

My tears is not your tears
My pain is not your pain
Like the glorious sky, incessantly honor and glory
Have the same moving

No need to worry about your disability
Just needed to calm and steady so could move ahead
Told to my own self, I have to be useful

**
Everyone is No. 1
As long as you never care about can or can't
Exchange your life with one breath
No need to wait to see the future

Everyone is No. 1
Achieving success, do you in or not?
With your true burning sweat and full heart...
The first belongs to everyone

My hand is not your hand
My mouth is not your mouth
As long as being one mind,
Wind and rainstorms have become good friends

No need to worry about your disability
Just needed to calm and steady so could move ahead
Told to my own self, I have to be useful

Everyone is No. 1
As long as you never care about can or can't
Exchange your life with one breath
No need to wait to see the future

Everyone is No. 1
Achieving success, do you in or not?
With your true burning sweat and full hearted...
The first belongs to everyone

No need to afraid, however cold is the journey…
Consider there is warm furthermore... I just can...
Strive and keep running...
