Setback: Master, can I change?

A discouragement, before time you were!
A betterment, you have not been!
An advance, you are not!
A hindrance, you will always be!

Xenia Epigram
To setback I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like discouragement
When I'm writing and drawing blanks,
     I almost settle using impediment

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 verse, published so people might see
Newly pleasant notations, vividly informing, and oh how provided free?
Defeat or mishap seem way too manifest. But is failing?
Adversity, check? - or stoppage, obstacle? Darn! I excluded falling!
I reason hindrance and otherwise recession, but frankly ought I
- paste concepts so - summaries drafted with equations spry?
