Solving it as a simple substitution with many errors and/or assuming that some symbols substitute for sounds rather than letters as in a phonetic cipher produces this partial solution. Uncertain letters or sounds are in red.

VESEL
THOUGH BOHND YOU
SHEL KNOW THE STETE OF
THE WORLD
HELOWNEST
WIL BE WHOLE EGON

enter image description here

This suggests the phrase "world will be whole again" and a quick google search finds it is a quote from Hollow Knight:
Vessel. Though bound, you shall know the state of the world. Hallownest will be whole again.
The puzzle's title, these words are for you alone, is also a Hollow Knight reference.
