I took the one less traveled by.
Robert Frost when you said this,
I became inspired and took 
the less traveled one.
But then you didn't tell us,
when you follow the less traveled,
that things would prick you,
darkness would shroud your vision,
You would simply become, Lost.
I took the one less traveled by.
I cried, Robert Frost, because I'm scared,
of the dark, of not knowing where I will
end up.
I took the one less traveled by.
Robert Frost, I should have listened to my parents,
instead of taking a different road, I should have
just took to the side of the same,
more safe road.
I took the one less traveled by.
Robert Frost, I know you say the road less traveled,
made all the difference, but sometimes, the road,
that has held many melted rubber tread and more footsteps, seems to have led,
to a safer place.
