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.

Ouch, you never said heroin burns...

by lyssiepie on August 22, 2010   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My mom is an alcoholic but no longer a heroin addict. Because of her choices i was raped and molested by my cousin for years, and beaten to near death by my father nearly everyday.
She left me and my brother on numerous doorsteps, and just when we'd be happy she'd come back or Daddy Dearest would find us. She now lives in Florida with her drunk ass husband. happy wishes Dee.
