A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

We must change our social conscious.

by Sharon_Lewis on February 18, 2010   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Until we realize we do not need it all now
We are destined to regress
In order to move forward
We must change our appetites
Free ourselves from overindulgence
Take responsibility for our choices
Treat each other and our earth
As the precious, irreplaceable life
So we may soar

Individuals can change the world
Governments cannot
Governments are a reflection of their constituency
Choose balance and grace
Think of tomorrow with every decision
And the world will echo a beautiful representation
