The Bible is full to overflowing with things that are so deep that some cannot even grasp them. That may sound selfish or pointless, but that's the way a lot of people see God's Word: they open it up, read a few pieces, realize they don't understand it, then never open it again.
The Bible was intended to be light and life unto us all day long! Those passages that make no sense at all to you now WILL MAKE SENSE as You mature in Christ, continue to read God's Word, and give Him a chance!
Some of the poems you read from this man may make no sense whatsoever...right now. However, the closer you get to God, the more familiar you become with His Word, and the more personal you get with Jesus will certainly cause those Bible passages to come to life! You will see how God plants a certain scripture in your heart and brings it to fruition later down the road. Even these poems He gives me will come alive to you...in HIS time.
Don't give up! Keep seeking and seeing God at work all around you.
I promise you, HE IS THERE!
