Here's my submission
I was not born with a silver spoon;
But God gave me a hand for a silver spoon.
My parents were not well to do;
but they did well what they had to do.
Don't lose sight of your big picture;
but paste a big picture of your dreams on the wall.
Your invention will be ground breaking;
Even when you are yet to fix the ground breaking ceremony
Everyone may not see the same page of your dreams with you;
thought they'll all see the pictures on the same page of your report
Analysis: Your beginning may be small, but your future will be great, if you don't faint. Write down your vision and run with with it, your background is only an information.
