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.

Cream rises. I know that. Like I know that Gold has value and men are often driven by their lust. Cloudy valueless lust, angrliy cutting into innocent bystanders. I will rise above this fucking mess. Yes, I said it. And I meant it. I am done with the hurting and nonsense. There is a reason nature shows you Mother Bear.
