The search and longing for love that will never come in my opinion. I have always long for the love and have never really felt what it is. There where several instances when I thought i had finally found only to be deceived by what was probably strong lust. I am a loner, and i have come to the realization that i will always be alone, and i have accepted that and in some case, i believe its a good thing. I can only count on me at the end of the day, even though others can count on me if and when the times comes, but when its my turn in need, its always disappointment. They say you shouldn't put your trust in man, but its my nature too and slowly and surely i have been learning not to get to excited so easily over any situation which i foresee could be a positivity stride in my life. No there is no negative thoughts, because am in constant positivity of what life challenges are ahead. Pressing forward as i always do with every hurdle, i am indeed a survivor of the bumpy roller coaster. I am optimistic though that one day love will take over. Until that time all i have is me.

Last night in New York City Patrik Ian Polk's latest film "Blackbird" made its debut as part of the American Black Film Festival at the SVA Theatre to a packed house of eager movie goers. D. Woods and Torrey Laamar were both on hand at the screening along with Patrik for the New York City premier. Blackbird is currently on a film festival run and is close to a distribution deal that will make the movie available nationwide soon so that the rest of you guys can see this amazing ensemble tell a powerful story that only Patrik Ian Polk can tell of a young man coming to grips with his sexuality as well as dealing with the conflict of his religious beliefs.
Based on the novel by Larry Duplechan, Blackbird is a powerful coming-of-age story about 17-year-old Randy Rousseau. A devout high school choir boy, Randy is struggling to come to terms with his sexuality in a small, religiously-conservative Mississippi town he calls home. Randy juggles his role as star of the church choir while facing the everyday trials of life as a high school misfit. Complicating matters, his little sister has gone missing and his parents have subsequently split up, leaving him to care for his heartbroken mother, Claire. When Claire discovers the shocking secret her son has been hiding, she blames him for the disappearance of his sister. Randy’s father, Lance, who has been keeping a watchful eye on his broken family, steps in to give his son a hand as he struggles to make the difficult transition into manhood.
