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 and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

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

SIX WORD » LIFE

Many bullet holes and no stiches.

by Ponchita on March 31, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


In life even your own family isn't really your family. That is why i hate my middle name and sadly i have to carry it around with me. When i needed someone, there was no one there to hold me and tend to my wounds. All my life i have learned from my own faults and experiences. In life its like survival of the fittest. Only the most hurt will survive.
