I spoke to, of you, whisper!
I know your path to life!
I knew the secrets of death,
Of life and life and life!
Yet, should you truly seek me, You must never now
Should you seek me in winter
Here it is summer or spring!
Use powerful tools: reality
To get through and past
the glacial ice, that knife
of night alight!
Due, never forget to serve
true, this I know is true of
Seek me in the wind and leaves!
Seek my soul past seas!
Seek me in the church and chapel,
Remember me with ease,
For I am living, and moving!
Mountains melt on my breath,
Let hope engage all dreadful dread!
I await, do not hate, dear friend!
I await, await, await!
For you know me,
You whisper, as do I!
And on my strength you push and pull through dawn and day,
You secretly travel,
And secretly move,
Onto the path,
Which brings you, me life!
Whisper truth, more powerful than any power,
Truth, love, reality, hope!
We find withering hope,
To true divine,
Follow me, eat from my heart,
Never neglect the path of truth and heart!
Both to | do guide!
Who is Marc Evan Aupiais?
A deep interest in the law of South Africa, especially our constitutional and common law, guided my studies and continues to influence my current career path. I enjoy engaging in the day to day work of being an attorney, and reading the material contained in our case law.
I have gained and enjoyed much exposure to the law and to the day to day details of practice, and to extensive litigation work, during my years of practise since my admission to the profession and enrolment as an attorney of the High Court, as well as during my articles of clerkship and, prior to that, when I worked as a student counsellor/paralegal at the Wits Law Clinic – in the final year of law school and during my studies at the School for Legal Practice.
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.
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, where necessary.
The cultures and legal systems, morals and courtesy systems, languages, intricacies and religions of South Africa and of the nations of the world, are subjects I love to research. I enjoy reading and writing. To keep abreast with important events occurring in other countries, I find my knowledge of other languages, especially French, to be highly useful. I passed Afrikaans at a matric level. I took Zulu from grades 5 to 7. The language I am best acquainted with, is my first language of English, which I speak in everyday life.
I enjoy public speaking and debate, and believe that manners, appropriate dress for an occasion and courtesy are of very great importance. I enjoy hard work and like to throw myself entirely into solving a problem.
