    You think in Chinese, that is why you choose "to be understood".

    Poem is difficult FOR you to understand.

    NOT

    Poem is difficult FOR you to be understood.

    The point is YOU understand the poem in an ACTIVE (主動的) way, NOT Poem to be understood by you in a PASSIVE (被動的) way. After all, Poem has NO power to force you to understand.
