Poems and Chants
is a Soror?
A soror is someone who is more special
She is someone with whom you have a common bond-through the sisterhood.
She is love mixed with friendship-the best things in life.
She is one of the most precious individuals in the world.
And you'll always find her whether you're near or apart, for she is in
every city, town, and nation.
She might be referred to as a "Sands" or "Line Sister."
Together you have shared moments in your lives.
A soror is a confidante and a counselor.
She's a wonderful friend. She's there when you need her-during the good
times or the bad.
She represents honesty and trust enfolded in love.
And she may even be your mother, sister, daughter, aunt, grandmother,
cousin, or friend.
What is an Alpha Kappa Alpha
Alpha Kappa Alpha Mystique
Beauty unparalleled, grace undefined,
An Alpha Kappa Alpha Woman is one of a kind.
She walks in a room with her head held high,
Acknowledgement of her presences is an awe-filled gaze, or admiring
The Alpha Kappa Alpha Woman is regal and profound.
She is the essence of feminism and these qualities abound.
The Alpha Kappa Alpha Woman is honorable and oh so unique.
All of these qualities culminated,
Created the Alpha Kappa Alpha Mystique.

Zeta Delta Chapter
Conceited we're called
Because we stand tall,
Uppity we're deemed
Due to our self-esteem
"Our noses are always in the air"
For looking downward we don't dare
And continue with pride
Realizing that if you're a lady
You're automatically downgraded
Sophistication and class is a plus
Although others don't view it as much
Their thoughts are so remote
But when we were founded,
Women couldn't vote
Civil rights were a luxury
In the early 20th century
AKA was very
Although they laugh and act very cynical
So remember the next time they jeer,
You were the FIRST to be here
Deleting all that was not good
And replacing it with SISTERHOOD
Setting a trend for all the rest
Proving that they could be the very best.
As ladies we must learn
Nothing is given, all is earned
With this in mind
You'll ultimately find
That it's a flair
It's a mood,
We call it AKATUDE
by Soror Michelle Robinson
Original, by definition, means pertaining to the Source,
Well when you speak of the Original Woman, you are speaking of me, of course.
See - I am the AKA, the First and Finest for All to Behold.
I change Black Women to Black Pearls, I am 90 years old.
By merit and by culture is the motivation behind my strides,
An Alpha Kappa Alpha Woman will always Walk with Pride.
You see, being the Original Woman is not my only claim to fame,
Service to all Mankind is my most esteemed aim.
I am the Original, giving consistently of myself,
Addressing pertinent issues, from AKAdemics to good health.
Who made a commitment to do good,
A commitment to my people and to my Sisterhood.
I am the hope and the dream of the impoverished and unclean,
When I grace the room you know the Pink and Green is on the scene.
I am intelligent, beautiful, finest yet and sophisticated,
A strong black woman, college trained and widely educated.
One time originated, three times imitated, but never, ever duplicated
I represent Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated!!!!
