Actuate: Master, am I changing?

A performance, without exception, you were!
A balance, you have not been!
A repose, you are not!
A fuse, you will continuously be!

Xenia Epigram
Please accept from me this page,
     didicated to the word actuate
Used by many an important sage,
     needing a term for instigate

But wait, I promise an Epigram
     more fitting for this word.
When I receive a better program,
     for now it's just absurd!

Can I give a verse, published so people might see
Fully defining summaries, perhaps educating, and oh but divulged free?
Affect or wiggle look way too absolute. But is bearing?
Instigate, churn? - or stirring, flounder? Damn! I excluded tearing!
I wonder stimulate and certainly galvanize, but frankly ought I
- blurt concepts so - innuendos drafted with equations spry?

There was a young girl from The Gove,
And she needed a word for move.
