I guess this is poetic prose, or prose poetic. Interesting, though I am not fond of 2nd. person poetry. Perhaps this could be considered lyrical.
There's a good message in this poem. It would help the reader to make the pairs of lines match in rhythm besides rhyme. You may even want to try out more creative patterns or rhyme and rhythm. Keep writing.
This is quite lovely. I like how you go from a place of pain and darkness to a sense of hope. Some of the lines seems to not have the right number of syllables, but I'll admit that poetry is not my strong suit and I have a hard time hearing the rhythm. When I write poems I have to count out the syllables of each line on my fingers. I do like your message and I think many will be able to relate to this and see the hope in "just a name." Good job!
