Ask God! Take My life! Give it to the broken!
I'd never ask a man to kill me-
Though many times have I asked it of God- Himself!
To end my life, I've daily prayed!
But never man- do I give my life to!
Though I adore death-
And lust after her curves!
Though I stroke her sleek black hair!
Adore her black angel wings!
I adore life more-
Her skin, like silk at that-
Her hatred of death!
And for her do I hate death!
And all her lusts and vices!
And for her I adore
The tree on fire,
Should the tree still grow,
And survive by the ways
Of everlasting life!
I wonder at life!
When good! I can be awkward!
When bad! My heart hurt!
I look to you! Girl! Life!
I wonder and wonder!
And I see you!
Half death! But not quite!
And I look and see you!
And hear your siren call!
I see you! And pray you be life!
Doesn't hardly exist!
For me! What is dead is gone!
And good shall pass with me away!
As I walk and fly and run,
As I approach the knight-
The Sun! And the Son!
My path! My tainted one!
Pass away with me dear-
Only when God takes life from you!
Least you tell him you do not want it!
Fight for life!
With all you have left-
With truth, hope- love!
My love if yours not suffice!
God's if mine is too unkind!
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.

Law firms I have worked at include: DL Wilson Attorneys in Randburg North, Desmond Barry Attorneys in Morningside, Sandton, Botha & Sutherland Attorneys in Aukland Park, Johannesburg.
