Robert Frost "The Road Not
1916 Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
two roads diverged in a wood, and I --
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference
As part of our research, our team
has interviewed various representatives from different organisations
that deals with teenage delinquents to broaden our knowledge
and perspectives regarding the issue. These organisations
include the Singapore Boys' Home, TOUCH Youth Learning Centre,
and the Prison School in Singapore, where our very own school
teacher used to teach.
As most of our information comes
from the interviews, the processed information from the interview
are actually what you have read in the "The Boys' Home"
and "Welfare Organisations" page. However, for the

Youth Learning Centre
For this welfare
organisation, we interviewed a teacher in TOUCH Youth Learning
