When I grow up...


A fire wall racing, fear buzzing through the air, get your bag we’re leaving.. will we ever be back?

Flashing blue and red, fleeing into the night, sleepless nights evacuated not knowing what was lost.

The brave stood back and fought, destruction was so close, the black line marks where our heros stood.

A miracle realised, burnt landscapes remain, little eyes watching on.. a dream to be like them. 

Forever thankful to Queensland Fire and Emergency Services, Queensland Police Services and the countless others who saved Peregian.
