The Anthem Ballad

written by: Paul Anthony Obey



On the mountain of love,
We can dance with the moon,
And then fly like a dove,
To the beat of our tune,

We can love till it hurts,
Ponder dreams and desire,
Share the wonder in spurts,
Melt our hearts in our fire,

Preparation for marvel,
Every cliché we know,
Thank all Gods universal,
Sing our songs as we grow,

No value could measure,
Our together alone,
Open chests of love’s treasure,
Take our seat on love’s throne.



Re-imagining of the song ‘Could It Be Magic’ by Barry Manilow.

The author, Paul Anthony Obey, born in 1970, is working class, brought up in a working class family and has raised a working class family. Married to a proud New Zealander, Nicola, they live in the North West of England and share 4 children; Ryan, Hayley, Bethany and Seth, one of each from both.

Paul has worked within the Social Housing environment for all his adult life in one guise or another, but has recently decided to write full time to share a view and hopefully inspire reaction in others to take another look at life, beyond the confines of self, question the generally accepted truth and make the World a better place for everyone. One step at a time!

My work is dedicated to all of those who believe in what I am trying to do and to some of those who don’t yet get it.
