The Catcher

I was given my instructions clearly.

"You are just the catcher," they said, 

"You are to receive, and then throw back." 

I don’t say a word and take my position. 

So here I am, hunched over my knees,

Carefully studying each player’s move.

Because I am the catcher, I have a role,

I am to receive, and then throw back. 

The sun beams burn my exposed skin, 

And rain beats down hard on my face. 

I am the catcher, I will stand my ground. 

I am to receive, and then throw back. 

At the stands, the people come and go, 

Their eyes always fixed on the playmaker. 

I am the catcher, I do not compare. 

I am to receive, and then throw back.

If I am not alert, then I am called out, 

and the game will go on without me. 

I am the catcher, there are others. 

I am to receive, and then throw back. 

I cannot keep what is thrown my way. 

I cannot run past the place I am given. 

"Because I am just the catcher," I say, 

"I am to receive, and then throw back."

Hi! (: I have just seen the picture of the little Groot you have made. It's wonderful, and I would order another one, but I live far away from you... I'm from Spain, and I'd be grateful if you could tell me how you did the little Groot. Thank you very much. <3

Hi there! Thank you <3 I’m glad you think so! Also, thank you for showing an interest in him!

I actually sculpted him with a program and had him printed through a 3-D printer. I added in the leaves later on by collecting fake plants and attaching them on one by one!

Hope that was helpful! :)

Does anyone want a cute BABY GROOT figurine for their desk? (Yep, I designed him based on the teeny tiny low res gifs on the internet when GotG first came out.) Message ME if you&#8217;re interested to know more! I only have a couple of them for SALE! (Please note: I don&#8217;t ship out of the Philippines though. Sorry!)

calemeows, Hello, dear! Here is my long overdue art trade! (I&#8217;m thinking of printing them out, so I can give/send them to you as sticker set too.)  
(After finishing this, I realized that cats are a challenge to draw HAHA)
