The shallow end of the depths of hades and fools
I look to you, whom I once loved,
Whom my soul adored more than God,
For whom I live, and would've died,
I look at you, as we head to hades,
I laugh, I spur you on.
I look to you and your empty life, I take the dagger, I push it further in, and in,
You help others, you're very nice, but we both know your great harm to life.
And your help of others seems to distract,
From the way you truly act,
Though you may know it not,
Your help does more harm than good.
I look at you, once my love,
I look at you, my life, my only one,
And look at you, my reason for living,
And indeed, and act as though to make our ends meet,
I see you there, I want your harm,
I want it because I cannot cope.
As I die, I want you gone,
As though for empathy, for sympathy I'd take a life.
Yet that part, which once loved you,
Yet it wants all good,
While all else wants hurt for you,
It's the part by which I live.
And I look to you, whom I spurred on,
And I look at hades- right forward and on.
And I ask myself, shall we not turn back to light.
And I ask myself, shall we not turn back to life!
Who is Marc Evan Aupiais?Attorney; Writer; Enthusiast of Germanic, Celtic, & Romance languages, with a love of exploring law, speech, legal systems, linguistics, sociology, & int. news.
I have always been fascinated with the law. By chance, it happens to be my field. I am an admitted attorney of the High Court of South Africa, as of 28 January 2016.
It was my fellow students' suggestions, in the final years of school, that I might be suited to a career in law, along with long discussions with a friend of mine - which imbued me with a keen interest in the history, language, and laws of the Roman Empire - that made me realise that law was the choice of career that best suited the ideas and plans I had for the future. I enrolled in an LLB degree at Wits University and subsequently graduated Bachelor of Laws a few years later.
I completed, with distinction, the Law Society's Legal Education and Development (L.E.A.D) School for Legal Practice program. I am pleased to have had the privilege of having served at two very different firms during my articles, giving me a much broader experience of work in the profession.
I believe success requires not just hard work, but intelligence, perseverance, humility, integrity, ingenuity, diligence, a strong work ethic, and the courage to request the assistance of those better-versed in a matter, or field.
I am passionate about the place of my birth, South Africa and am proud to be a patriot and citizen of this diverse and beautiful nation. I consider myself a global citizen and keep connections in a number of different nations across the world. Communicating with people from other cultures, I believe, has aided me to have a more open-minded approach in so far as how I see and interact with the world.
The cultures and legal systems, morals, and courtesy systems, languages, intricacies and religions of South Africa and of the world, are subjects I love to research. I extensively enjoy reading and writing, and in keeping abreast with important events occurring in other countries, I find my knowledge of other languages, especially French, to be quite useful.
