Abstentious: Master will the world adapt to me?

Hedonic, once upon a time you never were!
Sybaritic, you have not been!
Temperate, you are!
Dispassionate, you will ceaselessly be!

Xenia Epigram
To abstentious I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like continent
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using abstinent

I am in search of more,
     trying to sing your praise!
It's you I very much adore,
     lacking in so many ways.

Pi (π)
Can I pass a meter, committed so beings might see
Terse didactic allusions, perhaps nurturing, and oh how revealed free?
Frugal or sedate feel all too manifest. But is careful?
Restraint, staid? - or tempered, composed? Oops! I neglected caseful!
I ponder constancy and similarly economise, but broadly ought I
- blurt concepts so - notations crafted with equations spry?
