when a GREEK looks in the mirror Posted on 01-28-2006

My Prophyte/Spec sent me this poem I thought it was worth sharing. Tell me what you all think. When a Greek Looks in the Mirror When an Alpha looks in the mirror, Looking back he sees, A man of Vision, Stature and Integrity. When an AKA looks in the mirror, Looking back she sees, A woman of Virtue, Education, and Dignity. When a Kappa looks in the mirror, Looking back he sees, A man of Intelligence, Service, and Possibility. When an Omega looks in the mirror, Looking back he sees, A man of Strength, Heart, and Masculinity. When a Delta looks in the mirror, Looking back she sees, A woman of Sophistication, Love, and Excellency. When a Sigma looks in the mirror, Looking back he sees, A man of Honor, Purpose, and Ability. When a Zeta looks in the mirror, Looking back she sees, A woman of Trust, Action, and Ingenuity. When a SGRho looks in the mirror, Looking back she sees, A woman of Care, Soul, and Extreme Capability. When an Iota looks in the mirror, Looking back he sees, A man of Distinction, Progress, and Utility. When a Greek looks in the mirror, Looking back they see, A long line of struggling brothers and sisters, To ensure our freedom and equality. When a Greek looks in the mirror, Looking back they see, The ability to change the world In each of their founders' dreams. When a Greek looks in the mirror, Looking back they see, The eyes of a nation focusing On what this world was meant to be. When a Greek looks in the mirror, Looking back they shouldn't see, Colors, calls and symbols Misused to fracture and degrade a community. When a Greek looks in the mirror, Looking back they should see, The collective gathering of the Divine Nine To unite and encourage A nation in need... Because... When a Non-Greek looks at a Greek, Looking back they should see, A helping hand, An encouraging heart, And a vision to succeed.

That is acutally my first time reading that poem. I wish some GREEKS could read this and get the understanding of it, because a lot of itmes we get so caught up on the calls, nalia, and colors and see that as the IMAGE when the real IMAGE is what everyone else sees underneath..but that's a whole new topic...but I REALLY like this poem

AKAtude and Ohh have that type of relationship as she has stated before, however, arguing has nothing to do with being in a certain group. Its something like sibling rivalry. In the end, I'm still going to have respect and love for that member of ____ that I just argued with or made a remark about in a show. Just because UA and UTK have somewhat of a rivalry due to football doesn't mean two players don't respect each other and leave that rivalry on the field.

Why even call it the Divine 9, when half the time all you people do is fight and argue?
You want to be a part of it something bad don't you?

' Lol you're so silly. Christa, love the elephant pin. Is he dancing? I'm going to have to buy like a million elephants when this new Delta line goes over. My wallet's not looking forward to it.
