A dignified being of high self esteem

appeared in an advertisement in 1904  (here)

the 11 of 12 given words:
man contain sin toll crunch  
irascible (easily provoked to anger)
trill (succession of sounds of a bird,animals or a person).
thrill play mint instill 

Man was trying hard to contain his activities
Nefarious and in sin it took its toll dearly
A crunch on his self and easily irascible
He had decided to turn over a new leaf
It was a thrill before to just throw in a trill
To play it clownish with intention to irritate

Not anymore but to mint a new person
A new dawn realized to instill upon himself
A dignified being of high self esteem

Why must it be difficult once he had set his sights
Why were there obstacles that stifled his efforts
Already highly motivated he wanted to clinch it
Getting himself prepared for the big day!
