You see me in a pretty little crown,

All fancy and with a nice little smile.

In my element, makes it hard to frown,

I am always expected to have style.


Always try my best to model success,

Have to be glammed from my head to my heels.

Giving one hundred percent and no less,

Looking for dresses, trying to find deals.


While I absolutely love what I do,

I have given up so much of my time.

Miles traveled and road trips, I've done that too,

Alarm always at 6 A.M., chime, chime!


And while sometimes it may not be easy,

Before I'm a queen, I'm always Phoebe.

The author's comments:

This poem is about my experience and involvement with the Miss Arkansas' Outstanding Teen pageant organization. I can not explain what all this system has done for my confidence and shaping me into the person I am today. I am forever thankful for this organization and the role it has played on my life.
