On The Edge And Beyond

In the language of Borneo’s Penan tribe, there are forty words for sago palm, and no words for goodbye, or thank you – or thief. The Penan are a nomadic people who view the entire rainforest as their home. They are an “eco-village” on the move. In the time it takes to read a paragraph of this text, another three hectares of the Borneo rainforest will have been cut

Sadly indigenous community’s in rainforest are discriminated against and are suffering because of the destruction of their eco environment due to deforestation by unsustainable and illegal logging and cultivation of oil palm plantations

There is a campaign to boycott palm oil products in the western world because it destroys the rainforest and the ethno-sphere as it contributes to global warming and the destruction of wildlife and fauna.

On The Edge and Beyond

On the edge

you were looking out

On the frontier

In the decay of the forest

Burning of the land

Dance in a circle

Under trees of green

Watch the world from a faded sunset

And rise up

From your broken dreams

On the edge you were running from

The last frontier

In the decay of the buildings

Turning of the land

Dance in a forest

Under the sacred green

Save the earth from

Greed of gold

Rise up

Let the weeping willow be

On the edge and beyond

You were standing there

Looking out

In a changing world of decay

Save it now

On the edge and beyond

You were standing there

If they could only see

There may be hope for another way

There’s so much hurt

There’s so much pain

Why do we do it to each other

Can’t seem to make no sense of it

On the outcome

And in the end

Who pays the price

In this Dilemma

On the Edge and beyond

On the edge you were looking out

On the frontier

In a view of the twilight

Where the fireflies fly

Dance in a forest

Under the twilight sky

Save the earth from greed of gold

Rise up

Let the Rainforest man be

To chorus:

On the edge and beyond

You were standing there

Looking out

In a changing world of decay

Save it now

On the edge and beyond

You were standing there

If they could only see

There may be hope for another way
