Illuminate: Master, do I have a bright future?

An accusation, you will eternally be!

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

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

Just like the lanterns,
they're easily frivolous.
Not patently strong!
Hard but easily broken,
To be illuminated.

Pi (π)
Can I pass a meter, committed so people might see
Terse engaging innuendos, overtly educating, and oh but revealed free?
Ignite or kindle seem all too apparent. But is flaring?
Enlighten, light? - or brighten, illumine? Oops! I deserted glaring!
I reason irradiate and similarly elucidate, but frankly ought I
- crank meanings so - notations written with computers spry?
