The poem "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost is about the __________ that one  makes in life. It tells about a man who comes to a ___________ in the road he is  travelling upon. He feels ___________ that he can not travel___________ paths as he  must choose one. Frost uses this fork in the road to represent a point in the man's life  where he has to choose the ___________ he wishes to take in life. As he thinks about  his ___________ he looks down one path as far as he can see trying to ___________  what life will be like if he walks that path. He then gazes at the other and decides the  outcome of going down that path would be just as ________________. At this point he concludes  that  the  ________that  has  been  less  travelled  on  would  be  more  ___________ when he reaches the end of it. The man then decides that he will save the  other path for another day, even though he knows that one path leads to another and  that he won't get a ___________ to go back. The man then says that he will be telling  this story with a sigh someday in the future suggesting that he will ___________ what  life would have been like if he had chosen the more walked path even though the path  he chose has made all the difference.

5. Roads  are  fascinating  as  metaphors  for  life,  change,  journeys,  partings,  adventure,  etc.  or  simply  as  roads.  This  is  probably  why  they,  and  all  their  attendant images, have permeated art, literature and song. In the poem, Frost  uses the fork in the road as a metaphor for the choices we make in life. Thus the  roads are, in fact, two alternative ways of life. What other nouns could be used to  represent life?
