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.

Cowards strike undercover to conceal weakness

by EnMasse on April 16, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Of character -
they tell themselves they have cause;
they tell themselves they have God;
they tell themselves they are righteous;
they lead themselves to believe,
they can take lives as they please,
for a rational they believe to be sound
they shed innocent blood in the street;
shatter lives they believe are lived weak;
they think they are pious;
they think they will be blessed;
they think they will be rewarded,
for deeds against humanity
they are compelled by twisted words,
to commit egregious deeds
they are without honor;
shield themselves behind faith
they are of the lowest kind;
taught by those thwarted in heart,
to excel as ushers of death.
