I don't have the passion anymore, and so remember,
Cobain death conspiracy theorists often cite this line as evidence that he did not commit suicide—that the bulk of this handwritten letter was intended as a farewell to Nirvana and/or the music industry, not life, and that the last four lines added later by someone else.
There is not much credible evidence of this theory. Verifiable handwriting experts have said either that the last four lines were written by the same person as the rest, or that results are inconclusive. (Tom Grant, who has built an entire career on Cobain conspiracy theorizing, claims to have spoken to experts who say otherwise, but this claim has not been substantiated.)
Cobain had a documented history of serious drug addiction, depression, suicidal feelings, and at least one unsuccessful suicide attempt. Shortly before killing himself, he had escaped a rehab facility, purchased a shotgun and bullets, and gone into hiding. He behaved, in short, like someone planning to kill himself.
It is also true that Cobain was estranged from his Nirvana bandmates and likely wanted to leave the band at the time of his death. He had begun tentative work on a project with friend and R.E.M. singer Michael Stipe, which Stipe says he actually initiated in an attempt to keep Cobain from killing himself. (Stipe would go on to write the song “Let Me In” about Cobain)
