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.

Unfettered. No bonds of sisterhood, sister.

by Redx3 on June 17, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My youngest sister is my half sister, same mom, different dad. After the divorce, she went to live with him. I was already a married woman, living out of the state. We are now fourteen years out from that day. We talk on major holidays. She doesn't answer my calls. She doesn't text me back. I have thrown the ashes of our relationship to the winds and I hope that someday she finds peace from the demons that haunt her.
