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.

@moneyinfant has added your contest to the list Steemit Writing Contests: Issue #65. The list is updated on a daily basis and your contest will remain on the list until its expiration - there's nothing you need to do.

The list was created to save writers the excessive amount of time spent searching through the #contest tag for writing contests. Now they can just come to the list each day, see new contests and use their time doing what they love - writing.

If you'd like to help spread the word about the Steemit Writing Contest List I'd really appreciate a resteem, but it certainly isn't necessary. The project is simply meant to help writers save time and contest creators attract more contestants.

P.S. If you know of any contests I've missed I'd love to hear about them. Thanks!


Thank you @moneyinfant. I appreciate
