Grittiness: Master, can I change my nature?

A perseverance, you were!
A diligence, you have been!
A mettle, you are!
A fettle, you will continually be!

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

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

Pi (π)
May I make a rhyme, published so pupils might see
Fully didactic innuendos, proudly informing, and oh now conveyed free?
Mettle or gritty feel way too manifest. But is landing?
Constancy, spunk? - or tenacity, patience? Darn! I excluded sanding!
I wonder endurance and therefore character, but plainly ought I
- blurt concepts so - summaries drafted with equations spry?
