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.

Hate this town, he doesn't understand.

I can't even go on a walk around my neighborhood without hearing homophobic or hateful comments yelled at me from cars driving by or kids on bikes.
I can't walk outside without fearing that I'm going to get beat up for how I look.
I can't go down one of the streets by my house without risking walking by my abusers house.
And my dad still questions why I hate this town so much and why I can't wait to get out of here.
