ORIGINAL

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 105 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 our 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 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 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!
