Woe I dislike them, / Hints shall be revealed quite soon / Should it not be solved.

It appears that the text is:

A basic substitution cipher, which we can pull apart using some mental frequency analysis and by looking for patterns. For example, if we guess [\$%} %} => THIS IS, it starts to unravel pretty quickly to:

CODES WITHIN A CODE
CIPHERS WRITTEN FRONT TO END
THE NARE IS NULLEST

THIS IS JUST THE START
LATER WILL WE SOMETHING ROTE
UNTIL NEXT WE REET

However, I'm not sure if there's more to do, nor am I sure if

the typos/nonsense words are deliberate or not...
