Great Motivational Poem for Students - Miles to go before I sleep by Robert Frost

March 21, 2014


On World Poetry Day (March 21),  I recall few great poems that are very motivational. Aspirants of engineering and medical entrance exams work very hard for 2 or more years, but the few weeks just before the exams are hardest.

You are exhausted, worried and even scared.

But dear friends, keep the faith. In this lovely poem below, Robert Frost beautifully explains a concept that I have tried to map it your journey of preparing for entrance exams.

There comes a time when after a long period of hard work, you come to a rest and think you may not be able to crack the entrance, going easy and choosing an easier graduation program is a good idea. You figure out how this easier program will also help you in realizing your dream. But remember the promise you made to yourself and your family of securing a seat in most reputed engineering or medical colleges. You then should make an effort to go that extra mile and keep your promise.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening



Whose woods these are I think I know.

His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.


My little horse must think it queer 
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.


He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.  
The only other sounds the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.


The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep, 
And miles to go before I sleep.

- Robert Frost

Keep on going strong as after the hard work, a bright future awaits.
