I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference Robert Frost The Road Not Taken The Thought of a Bird I only took the one less baked the one that had gone cold by traveling such a long way from the mills But as I perched by and delightfully pecked on it I saw that a small boy has been scolded from stealing And as tears made their way down and all over his face I grabbed the bread again and put it back on the counter As I flew away I realized I had made a difference

But if it had to perish twice I think I know enough of hate to say that for destruction ice is also great and would suffice Robert Frost Fire and Ice My Past Present and Future I am barely at the beginning of my life but I have gone through lots and if I could have redone things I have already done it still might not be so good for my actions have led to what I am now and to think that I could have perished while coming to now I think twice and cannot believe what I have done and I think I know that enough of my actions are ones of being unforgivable and full of hate and to say and admit is painful because my actions are ones that make me that are remembered as me for it is I that could have caused destruction and filled people s minds with cold ice But that is also what might make me great
   But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate to say that for destruction ice is also great and would su...
