Song Dedicated to Thich Nhat Hanh

100. Song Dedicated to Thich Nhat Hanh

In 1988 I wrote a song which I dedicated to Thich Nhat Hanh. The words here give you some idea of a small part of what I have gained from this man.

Peace – One Step At a Time

Sometimes I’m frenzied and I can’t catch my breath,

And I rush from job to job and feel I’ll never get done,

And then something interrupts that adds more things for me to do

And I feel overwhelmed and helpless and I don’t know where to turn—

Peace—one step at a time,

I can have peace—one step at a time,

I can have peace.

It happens once again I lose it once more,

Lose my center, lose my patience, lose my calm, inner self,

And the pressure builds, frustration mounts,

I don’t know where I’m headed,

And I toss and turn and wonder why I can’t seem to remember—

Peace—one step at a time,

I can have peace—one step at a time,

I can have peace.

Slowing down now—Smiling more now,

Walking carefully—Being peace now,

Reaching out now—Spreading peace,

Full circle coming round.

Peace—one step at a time,

I can be peace—one step at a time,

I can be peace.
