The Style of Madness

written by: Paul Anthony Obey



Yearning to be noticed,
Lonely in the crowd,
Ground-breaking and focussed,
Spirit left unbowed,

Whatever were we thinking?
Keeping up with style,
Hiding, ever shrinking,
Behind the rank and file,

Bold again with confidence,
Playing to our peers,
In fairness, our defence,
Grew willing volunteers.

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.
