The Paved Black Road

Leaves laugh in the breeze of outside
Playful kids run and scream joyously
No care in the world
Loving life
Along the paved black road.

A faint breeze blows
Shifting the air
And this room
Unlit by man, alive by the sun
It has already changed
The paved black road

It cannot reach here
Nor do I think it fair
For them to be out there
And I in here
From the paved black road

Wow. This is great! I have often felt kept from that tempting 'black paved road'. I think this poem does a great job of capturing the attention of the reader. I loved the word choice, and the subject as well. Awesome work!
