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.

easily chewed yet raw when stewed

What can cause such a Sisyphean burden yet effortlessly keep the hummingbird aflight?
What can fester for mere seconds while for an eternity it can thrive?
What can to most be imperceptible in appearance while clearly the blind can sense its attendance?
What could be so easily chewed yet taste so raw when left to be stewed?
What can you be more certain of when made than when you did conceive it?
What can you own without ever possessing or bargain for without it ever obtaining?
What can puncture a hole so deep the soul it may be killing or pierce deep enough the heart it can be healing?
