A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

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.

Astigmatism covered, disguise not televised? Idle.

Dole, my refrigerators running. I should apologize about this senseless masquerade.. a constant spin turns, I've read.
I don't know.. and I shouldn't assume. But should I break the tele?

Drugs, guns, commercializing, junk, food - sitting to defend my soul against eternity? Who is Atman?

Where did this start?
What is the reality?
How little I perceive as a single individual! Hoping the global family understands, kind words can help.

Even when the beacon seems hard to reach, for given can relate - unlike me
