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.

Mirage, non sense transformed affect soul.

I got lost with the beautifully spoken word, and left when I felt sad.

Now the lies seem so apparent I don't even want to laugh at ads.. can someone tell me why the media appears to expose scare-tactically bad news that society cannot take back, and doesn't commercialize the issues money can help with?

Like donation? Desalinization plants and farms?

Does the government have "remote" control issues? Or is it just me?
