What dilemma did the speaker face in the beginning?
At the beginning of the poem, the speaker is faced with the dilemma of choosing which path to take on a diverging road. This is a metaphor for the choices one must make in life, often with limited knowledge of what lies ahead or of how a single choice will affect one's life overall. As one must often do when faced with choices in life, the narrator must decide between the more conventional, expected path, and the less common, less certain path.
