Ko Peel te maunga te rū nei tāku ngākau
Ko Hae Hae te Moana te awa e mahea
nei aku māharahara
I tipu ake ahau i Winchester, i te Wai Pounamu
E mihi ana ki ngā tohu o nehe, o Korokoro i te Awa Kairangi e noho ana nei ahau.
Ko Kōtarani, ko Ngāti Pākehā ōku iwi

I te taha i tōku māmā
Ko Beth rāua ko Aubrey ōku tīpuna
Ko Alison tōku mamā
Ko Trevor tōku papā
Ko Sukhin tōku hoa tana
Tokorua āku tamariki
Ko Ishan tāku tama
Ko Anouka tāku kōtiro
Tokorua āku tamariki
Ko Amy Bowan tōku ingoa

Mount Peel is the mountain that speaks to my heart

I recognise the ancestral and spiritual landmarks of where Korokoro, Lower Hutt, where I live
My iwi are Scottish and Pākehā
