Proof : Inspired by Brenda Arledge

Thank You, Brenda for coming up with another word prompt "proof". Initially, I didn't know what to make of the word or in which direction to turn to but I put pen to paper and articulated my thoughts and feelings in words. Though it's a bit here and there, i still feel like I was able to bring the prompt to life.

So here's what I made of it.

What is proof?

Proof is evidence establishing the truth of a statement or thing.

The 15 Proof

Defeat is proof of quest to victory.

Faith is proof of belief.

Pushing through the struggle is proof of courage.

Success is proof of skill.

Truimp is proof of effort.

Trust Is proof of love.

Unwillingness to learn is proof of stupidity.

Poetry is proof of creativity.

Mistakes are proof of trial.

Songs are proof that we have souls.

Fruits are proof of seeds.

Service is proof of love for God.

Impact is proof of our existence

Scars are proof of survival.

Sunsets are proof of how bright life can.

Proof of God

There is God!

How much more proof do you need to be convinced?

The evidence is everywhere.

Life and everything in it is a wonder.

How did they come about?

The sky!

The stars!

The moon!

The sun!

The lush vegetation!


It is a proof that there's a maker.

There is God, who made the most beautiful things in the world to see, to touch and to be felt in our hearts.

God made all things beautiful.

God is all powerful!

Proof of Burden

It's okay to want proof for something but I feel like basing all your life beliefs on proof drowns a person in doubt.

Prove yourself to you

I understand that proving yourself to people comes from a place of wanting to be heard, accepted and a way of validating self worth but on the contrary, you only have to prove yourself to you. You're beautiful, you're strong , you're smart and you're blessed. Do you and focus on the things you can change.

Tobe, Very well written and a beautiful response to Brenda’s challenge.

I enjoyed reading your poetry. You ended it beautifully “Prove yourself to you“. This is very important. To focus on ourselves is very important

I appreciate your efforts

Blessings and Peace

Your first poem shows us proof of about everything.

It is awesome the way you used your words to show us that one.

The second one on proof of God is so true.

Loved the quote by Isaac Newton.

We all want to be heard & accepted but you are right...we need to think about ourselves first. We only need to prove our value to ourselves.

Great write.

I will post a link in the article.

We are able to prove many things, and with some, we cannot be sure. That is where beliefs and faith can prevail. Brenda will appreciate your examples of the word proof.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on April 30, 2021:

Peace, this is a very good response to Brenda’s word prompt. “Proof of God” is a big question people often ask. Well, give me proof of the Big Bang “Theory.” Many want proof of everything before they will believe it. It often bogs down the joy of just living.
