A new challenge I have faced

Raa atu, raa atu he wero ka wero i teetahi. Inaaia tata ake nei he raru ka wero i a au. He rawa kore ooku, he raru ki roto i tooku whaanau. Ka nui eenei kia whakahapa i a au i roto i ooku mahi.

Ko taa Te Whare Waananga o Wikitoria tikanga kia 96 te taumaha o ngā pepa hei tauira pūmau ki koo. Kei a au e 95 noa te taumaha o taku mahi. Naa runga i teeraa i whakakorengia e Hoto Akoranga taku tahua tauira. Naa taku whakamauru atu ki a Hoto Akoranga kia hoatu puutea, ka raru a au. He mahi tuuao nooku, engari he itiiti noa nei te puutea hua kia utu i ooku mauranga, kia utu i aaku kai, me te aha anoo kia utu i tooku whare noho ki Pooneke nei. Naa runga i taku koohukihuki, ka timata a au ki te aawangawanga. I mea mai teetahi “hei aha atu maau; Me aro atu ki oou whakaakoranga.” Me peehea hoki te aro atu inā noho tata kaainga kore a au. Kei te hangarau au, engari tonu. E moohio ana a au aa toona ka pai ake tooku tuuaahua, i tuku iimera atu a au ki Hoto Akoranga, ki te whare wananga hoki. I whakakii a au i ngaa utu whakawhiringa. Kua tonoa keetia e au moo ngaa pepa anoo. Kua mahia ngaa mahi kia tika haere ai taku tuuaahua.

He raru kei te kaainga. Me puu tonu a au ki aaku koorero, he raru kei roto i tooku whaanau. He koorero haangai ai. Iinaa tonu i wehe ngaatahi ai teetahi o ooku tuuaakana raaua ko taana hoa taane hou ki Ahitereiria. Ae e pai noa pea teeraa, engari ka peehea te mea atu i mahue i a ia taana tamaahine ki Whanganui. Ka peehea te mea atu kaaore he putanga ngaawari moo tooku tuungane i ngaa tarukino. I timata a ia i taana 14 tau, e 17 oona tau ināianei. Ka peehea te mea atu kei tooku maama ngaa tumomo mauiui e kore ai teetahi te hikoi pai ai, e rua oona mahi, ngaa mahi aa-tinana uaua nei. Ka whakaaro a au ka taka mai ngaa raa ka taka hoki te hau o tooku maamaa. Ka peehea te mea atu, he kui weriweri kino naa taa raaua tawhito rawa atu ka niho teka a raaua, he puurari tangata hoki e tino hiahia te paa mamae, te whakakinokino atu i tooku tungaane moo te kore noa. Ka peehea te mea atu i whaangai mai, i whakatipu hoki tooku maamaa i ngaa tamaiti e ono a tooku whaea keekee. Ka noho tuuaakana, teina, tuungane hoki ki a maaua ko tooku tuungaane i taana tuunga kootahi. E pirangi ana a au te wepua kaha ai i ngaa tangata i paa hara atu ki tooku whaanau.

Ehara i te mea he hanga aroha teenei maa koutou kia aro mai ki a au, e hee. He koorero noa eenei hei whakaatu atu i teetahi o ngaa uauatanga hurinoa. He ngaawari ake ooku raru ki ngaa raru o te nuinga, engari he raru tonu. Ahakoa tonu, kei te hari tonu a au.
