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.

My daddy is a US Marine

by EnMasse on August 28, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

mommy loves to snuggle with me
I have two doggies, who lick me a lot
when I get big,
I’m going to bang on some pots!

My daddy is a US Marine
he wants to come home and play with me
my mommy loves to laugh and sing
grandma can’t wait to give me a hug
grandpa thinks I’m cute as a bug

My daddy is a US Marine
he drives a big truck, right through the brown muck
mommy says: I’m just a little baby now
daddy says: soon enough, I’ll get to drive
his heavy duty truck!

7/2/12, My Daddy
[for my son, and soon to be born
grandson; a smoochie kiss & crushing hug]
