I write in English to escape censorship...

I write in English to escape censorship.
I rid myself from the clutches of "society".
Family and neighbours would never read me in English.
I can say whatever I want.
This is not noble.
But this is not cowardly, either.
It might be the bastard child of cowardice and nobility;
Passion that recognizes no cowardice and nobility,
A child long found and abandoned.

This is a bit intense. But your reasoning is impeccable. Well done.
