MIXED FEELINGS

When you are hurting
and people
 whom you care about
inform you
 of the good times they’re having
it’s hard to handle that information
without some mixed feelings.
You may envy a little
even as you wish them well.
You want to smile at their happiness
even as you feel grim about your plight.
It makes you feel a little anger
even though you don’t know
where to aim it
