One of my favorite poems has always been "The Road not Taken" by Robert Frost. I wrote something inspired and related to that Poem back in College.

Besides the frost I'm all alone
I take some time to think of this lie
It projects my life into a different tone
'cause as soon as we're born we start to die

With this in mind there's no fear to face
Life passes by in the blink of an eye
I look at this picture and wonder why
We're approaching death in this ironic race

Then I realized the truth that made me cry
That I'm still just sitting here writing phrase after phrase
When I should follow the frost without a sigh
Though it might make my being a little tense
I also will take the road less traveled by
And that indeed makes all the difference
