I Bring Not Thy Peace But Thy Sword



I bring not thy peace but thy sword;

for God’s will is his way.

The devil may reap his rewards

but in the end will join them.

There will be shadows in light

but wills of darkness condemns

them in  barrows  where they

will stay,

to rot and fade away

until the end of days,

When legends are forgot

and lore becomes a myth

Good lives on

in the heart of pure warriors

who fought Evil in its highest

True light shall prevail

in face of battle

100 can overcome 1,000

If courageous and fearless stand

facing the same Shadows

that once in darkness dwelled

let them not cross the light

that hides their true form

for if they hide they will

never be found

fading into other forms

poseurs of Peace and Love

with faces hateful and grim

no one will want to judge them

and “hurt” their little whims.

But instead we feed them

and we let them grow

and in the end we’re left

with hard fists and no risks

So in closing destroy Evil in its wake

and let say what they will…

Because Evil knows no compromise

and like dreams of devils in paradise

they are not here to stay.



*History note*: The image I chose is of Imam Ali’s Sword Zhul-Fekar (its name). This sword has never come down on an innocent men and has never been used in anger, It has only been used to fight in Gods name and nothing else, For a tool of war it is the purest weapon in history. The last battle that Zhul-fekar was seen in  is the Battle of Karbala, it was used by the Imam Hussien( a.s),passed down to him from his brother Imam Hassan (a.s)  from their Father Imam Ali (a.s) after their murders. Zhul-Fekar disappeared after Karbala and no one claims to have looted it,(they would have loved to boast about claiming it as a booty of war) It is believed that  it will resurface with our 12th Imam, Imam Mahdi (a.a.f).

  1. very good poem… about the sword I would argue the purist weapon in history is the weapon never used. As for a sword used in God’s name, I would say this has to be a fallacy…if God wanted a sword wielded in his/her name he/she would pick one up him/herself. He/she does not need an insect like man to fight his battles… as for the guilt or innocents of a man/woman that is truly for God alone to decide…

      that is where we differ my friend 🙂 A weapon that is never used is not always pure. As for Zhul-fekar it was never used to harm or terrorize narrations prove that and more importantly its owner Imam Ali (a.s) made sure of that.And it was not wielded in heaven but when the Imam wanted to get married he had no money so even though he loved the sword he sold it to one of his “friends”. When the day of the wedding came the Prophet Mohammed handed him the sword, He asked the Prophet how he came by it and the Prophet told him Gabriel the angel sent it to him, When he asked his “friend” who he sold it to about it, his friend told him he wasn’t even in the city that day and he had only just come home…so yes its been to Heaven and back.
      The sword was never used to fight “Gods Battles” but their own humans fight for what they believe in so each battle is their own. Yes we are insects in this world I agree with you on that but our cause is not small, Shia have been fighting terrorism since the death of the Prophet Mohammed, and to this day we still stand to our beliefs.And I agree with you, Only God is the true judge of man, But if ‘man’ is evil he does not deserve to walk this land…. Thank you for your comment, and thank you for challenging my brain to work! 🙂 If you want to understand why we follow our Imams blindly read up on them , Starting with Imam Ali, though I doubt you’ll find the greatest narrations, people to this day hate them and terrorize their Mausoleums…….Read The Peak of Eloquence by the Imam Ali (a.s) 🙂

  2. I will read what you suggest… It won’t change the fact I am against violence in all forms and all names in which it is perpetrated… I did not mean to offend with my comment…

    • no offence taken 🙂 I’m glad you commented! Education is also a weapon against ignorance and I for one am glad to use it! I didn’t make this blog to push my religious views on anyone and you are welcome to comment and here anytime. 🙂
