Onset: Master, what will come of me?

An inception, before time you were!
A division, you have not been!
An expiry, you are not!
A facility, you will always be!

Xenia Epigram
To onset I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like incursion
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using aggression

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

Can I pass a meter, furnished so crowds might see
Newly didactic abstracts, however educating, and oh but bestowed free?
Attack or outset feel way too absolute. But is fitting?
Beginning, start? - or outbreak, starting? Damn! I deserted pitting!
I reckon onslaught and sometimes inception, but broadly ought I
- found concepts so - innuendos drafted from equations spry?
