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.

Mother, son, love, joy, suicide, deadness

by Bejon on March 29, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

The blessed birth of my son, my only child, he was my miracle my 'gift' from God. He was the love and joy in my heart, soul, and life. A year ago, at the age of 32, he took his own life. No longer is there laughter in my heart, no rainbows, only a world of sadness and tears, a world void of expectations.
