In the poem the road not taken , the poet chose the road which was less travelled on. He chose it because he was bored with what he was doing. He wanted to use his talents and become a writer ie. the road which normally wasn't taken by people. He wanted to travel on that road and left the other one for some other time although he knew that it was not possible

The speaker chooses the road that is less trvelled by because it is the road to spritualism. He thinks that if he takes the road that is mostly used, then what will be the difference between him and other people.
