Every Member of a Black Fraternity or Sorority Needs to Read This Poem

We love poems here at Watch The Yard and this one about active membership always hits home for us.

The poem “Do you just belong” has been used by sports teams, churches, and various orginizations as a way to make their members reflect about their purpose and duties.

While many members of the Black greek community already know this poem, we thought we would share it as a refresher for those who have never read it or those who have not come across it in a while.

For those of you in leadership positions, this poem is always a great way to start chapter meetings.

Do You Just Belong?

Are you an active member
The kind that you would be missed?
Or are you just contented
That your name is on the list?

Do you attend the meetings and
Mingle with the flock?
Or do you just stay at home
To criticize and knock?

Do you take an active part
To help the work along?
Or are you satisfied
To only just belong?

Do you work with your committee
And get right in and mix?
Or leave the work to just a few
And talk about the CLIQUES?

Think this over MEMBER_____________
You know right from wrong!
Are you an active member
