I wouldn't worry if one of your children wants to be a scientist. Einstein, was a scientist, and a wonderful humanitarian. I don't know if he wrote poetry, but it would certainly not surprise me if he did.
Science has a cool way of making you want to start writing poetry. In my case, poetry about how God's managed to get such complex things to work out and form the universe.
Also, I hope to become some sort of well-liked poet. At least on my spare time. LOL, and by day I will be just a regular guy, programming computers, lol.
