Without Prejudice Mervelee Myers Been On Many Journeys In My 26 Years On God’s Earth Fight4justice Is My Dedication To Bring Change For Future Generation Of Family And Girls Who Must Be Leaders

Dedication To Mervelee Myers’ Granddaughter Adrina Legister

My Granddaughter Is My Precious Gift Of A Lifetime

The year 2004 will go down

In my history as part of my wonderful journey

Documented to creating my legacies

Nelson Mandela “The Purpose of Freedom is to Create For Others”

Always uppermost in my thoughts the past 7 years

Since the death of my mother and many others

I begged the South London Press to publish my story

When I was a nobody, and I was recognised everywhere I went

Because of my features and much more that are unique to me

From my DNA and “Multiple Identifies” I was once ashamed of

I had a cancer scare in 2004 and was not aware of it

Until 2008 when my brother BYRON took sick, and questions asked

I started Open University after escaping “Domestic Abuse and Homelessness”

I was free from the “Cycle of Abuse” when I get the courage to run for my life

Supported by Arnold Tomlinson who I was introduced to in 2001

Despite my deficits and limitations, I made use of my opportunities

Been challenging discrimination when Barclays colluded to defraud me of my savings

I took my claim to the Financial Ombudsman Service

Got compensated, I am no pushover

I was diagnosed with “Chronic Anxiety” in 2006 to do Health and Social Care examination

Arriving in Jamaica in December I was prepared to meet 2 grandchildren

I was on my way home from Montego Bay

We ended up at Landillo Housing Scheme

Where I meet my granddaughter for the first time

This is/was the best kept secret, ever, no one whisper a word

But we are known for keeping our mouths shut when it matters

Adrina was a chubby little girl and I fall in love immediately

What resonated with me the most was she was born in my month

Like me, Adrina has had her moments growing up in a world

Where it takes a village to raise a child

I must thank all those who played and continuing to provide a support network

For her to feel loved, valued, understood and appreciated in in this world of sorrows

Where some of us abandon and reject their own to follow the crowd

I can attest to this fact because it happened to me when I was young

Despite the odds, Adrina made it through High School

And graduated, unlike me who was affected by Childhood Traumas

I played an important role in Adrina’s life bridging the gap between

She and her mother, if it is even be an ear to listen when mum needs to

Share her concerns about her child and I always tried being neutral

Last time I saw my granddaughter when I was home for Ms Connie’s funeral

She was towering over me and I missed out on 7 years of her life

I received the news Adrina Legister has been accepted at

GC FOSTER COLLEGE where Valdin Allan Legister studied

So, Richard Harty of the UEL get ready to publish your investigation

Because Mervelee Myers with Fight4justice is advocating

On behalf of my granddaughter in breaking down the barriers

Of discrimination denying me my rights

To repair my mental and physical impairment

Studying at the UEL was to be part of my empowerment

But Richard Harty panicked and called my mobile to threaten me

I published my work, some of which were stolen by LinkedIn

I was once an INFLUENCER until LEYF strike

I will present evidence of carrying out “A Voice of a Child” research for June O’Sullivan

I was a participant in Dr. Maria Hudson’s “The Experience of Multiple Discrimination”

After what Kings College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust colluded to do to me

I must close off my tribute to Adrina K. Legister with my horoscope

Taurus: Someone is making plans that will give you the chance to meet some new and influential faces. You might resign yourself to this being a busy time, but it will also be so productive. There’s a lot going on that makes this a very interesting day.  

Today I salute my daughter-in-law Naheel Brown-Legister who has become a tower of strength for me. Those responsible for taking away 7 years of my life can best accept that I am on the road to recovery from the Cycle of Grief that affected my mental and physical wellbeing after the death of my mother. Adrina my granddaughter will be change for the future generation of my family.
