Build not only your empire. 
Do not attend solely to business matters
And to money.

Build not only your tastes and your style. 
Don’t become merely this shade over that
As you design.

Build not only on your skills. 
Don’t let accomplishments alone
Define your soul.

Build not only friendships. 
Do not allow niceties to obscure 
Deeper truths.

Whatever you build
Whatever you bring to this world, 
Build your character. 
Be honest with yourself at the end of each day, 
That at the end of your life you may look yourself 
Full-well in the mirror.
