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.

What restores your faith in humanity?

For me, it's holding my little boy. I've made so many mistakes, but when I hold this precious little life in my arms I'm reminded that true innocence still exists. I can relive it, remember and, in a sense, relearn it, because he is here. He has restored something in me that I thought could never be fixed.
