Innocence by Leanne Howard Kenney at



written by: Leanne Howard Kenney



when they come to get me
will i
be alone in my room?
will i have felt anything?
have been conflicted?

here’s what
i will
have told myself,

here’s what
i would
come to believe:

you don’t
love me anymore
care anymore
breathe me in

and you will still
to thank me
for what
i’ve done
for you

My name is Leanne Howard Kenney. I am a former speechwriter and press secretary for former San Diego City Councilmember current San Diego County Supervisor, Ron Roberts. I am a former Sportswriter. A former political writer. A former public relations copy writer. A former newspaper reporter. A former . . . Apparently, I am a former writer. Well, that is not quite true. I have been writing poetry on my own for quite a while. And, I have been writing the odd article here and there for my own and my friends' pleasure for years. I started posting my poetry approximately a year ago. Where they came from, I know not. I am just glad they came. I hope you enjoy what I have to say.
